WILLCOX — Grand Canyon Professional Rodeo Association made its presence felt again this year with the Rex Allen Days Rodeo.

Fans from as far as Switzerland came out to support the event Saturday and Sunday, making Quail Park Arena the place to be in Arizona last weekend.

Willcox native and rodeo participant Justin Rockhill said he loved the event and is looking forward to more.

“Steer wrestling — it was good; the steer’s ran fast, really fast. This event is more fun than scary; it’s an adrenaline rush. I like this rodeo, and I will be part of it again soon,” Rockhill said.
