Ever hear of Strong City Kansas?  If the answer is “no” – well don’t feel alone.  It’s not a big place and most of the time there’s not a whole lot happening there.  But each year, usually in early June, Strong City Kansas hosts the Flint Hills Rodeo.  It’s not a huge and flashy Big City type rodeo either.  It’s not held inside some glass and chrome “multi-sports” area.  No sir.  The Flint Hills Rodeo is the real deal.  Outside, under the big blue sky in the day and the stars at night.  It’s a down home event and it’s a hit every year.  Here’s a photo collection to give you some idea of all that happened this year. Welcome to Kansas Rodeo!
