This year’s theme was “Tough Enough To Wear Pink,” to highlight breast cancer awareness.

Events included: calf roping, bareback, saddle bronc, team roping, steer wrestling, barrel racing and bull riding.

Numerous activities were held Saturday in the Licking business district, including a 2 p.m. parade.
