"I really like the bull riding and the bronco riding," said Valdosta resident Lauren Bailey.

Rain kept pouring out of the sky, but people kept enjoying their time at the 2014 Down Home Days Rodeo in Madison.

"I've been here before and it's really fun, it's really cool to watch the bulls jump and the bucking broncos to show off their stuff, it's really cool," said Bailey.

Down Home Days kicked off Thursday with a cook-off and pet contest and continued Friday with the Professional Cowboy Association Rodeo, which even featured trick riding.

"I train bulls, horses, dogs, you name it, we do it. It's kind of a muddy show but that's okay because it's not going to stop us, we are here with Hershey the miniature horse and Hank the bull," said trick rider Gena Cox.

The event, put on by the Madison County Chamber of Commerce, involves over 150 cowboys and cowgirls participating in the rodeo.

"This is all a part of Tobacco Free Madison, I mean that's a big thing, It's getting the community together, the chamber does a great job of that, bringing fun family events here," said rodeo announcer Clint Allemand. "Stuff you can bring your kids to and you don't have to worry about what's said what's done, its just a fun family event."

Saturday is the Down Home Days Parade which starts at 10 a.m.
