The 31st Annual Mark Twain Lake Rodeo took place Thursday, June 29 through Saturday, July 1, 2017 at the Warren G. See South Spillway Recreation Area just below the Clarence Cannon Dam.
Entertainment was provided by DJ JT of Velocity Entertainment during Friday evening, and a fireworks display was provided Saturday at dusk. Food and beverages, including a beer garden, was available on grounds.
Below are pictures from Thursday and Saturday night’s rodeo events. Unfortunately, I couldn’t attend Friday.

It was a very successful event, and I am already looking forward to next year’s Mark Twain Lake Rodeo.
