This last weekend, the annual Bulls Only rodeo took a moment to pay tribute to first responders and the 19 Granite Mountain Hot Shots who lost their lives in the line of duty last month. Event coordinators asked the Lakeside Fire District to participate and Engine 2 and Medic 2 from the River Park fire station were honored to be involved in the event. The meaning of the alarm code 3-3-5 was explained to the crowd and then it was silent as the bell was rung. After this, fire personnel exited the arena and the 15th annual Bulls Only Rodeo got started with the Extreme Bronc Riding, Mutton Bustin, and then the Bulls.
