It is fair and rodeo season in Southern Idaho. A few of our rodeo stories recently made national news, and we've only just begun. The Twin Falls County Fair starts in less than a month, the Cassia County Fair is next week, and the Jerome County Fair and Rodeo started on Monday. All of these fairs offer the opportunity to get outdoors and have a lot of fun.
