LOS FRESNOS, TX (NEWSCENTER 23) — This weekend is filled with family fun, from carnival foods and rides and then of course the big event, the PRCA rodeo.
"This weekend they'll be 300 participants in 7 rodeo events"
Officials are expecting a big increase of outsiders into the small town of 5,000 residents.
"We'll have an extra 20,000 people in the rodeo area for the rodeo and the gas stations, the convenient stores, the restaurants, so it's good for everybody."
It's that money brought in by those people that help teens from the community.
"The rodeo community is a non-profit organization and we utilize funds for scholarships for area kids and the youth help with the stock show scholarships for them."
Officials say this is by far the biggest event held in Los Fresnos and one of the top five in the valley.
