Lowdown: Bulls. Blood. Dust. Mud

Yes, Fortuna Rodeo Week suffered a bit of tragedy Friday night. But you can't break the spirit of the people of Fortuna. The rodeo is tradition. The show must go on.

Sunday is the final day of the 92nd annual Fortuna Rodeo. In addition to the actual rodeo, today is the day of the famous not-to-be-believed scale barbecue. Fill your face. Watch the heroes. Live it up.

You got this, Fortuna.
