June 18, 2020
BASIN CITY -- Local cowboys are buckin' the state's rejection of reopening Franklin County as the Fourth of July approaches.
Despite the state's rejection of Phase 2 reopening in the wake of the coronavirus, residents are planning to kick up their heels for Independence Day.
Two rodeo performances, a street dance, parade and fireworks are on tap as part of the Basin City Fourth of July Parade and Freedom Rodeo.
The fun gets underway at 8 a.m. Friday, July 3, with rodeo slack.
The first of two rodeo performances is set for 6 p.m. that night, followed by an old-fashioned dance.
