People were falling head over heels, literally, for the exciting bull riding and bullfighting event at the Phillips County Fair Saturday, July 26. Participants had their share of spills and thrills when they faced the bulls in the fairgrounds arena.

An estimated 1,500 to 1,600 people filled the grandstands, happy to see a rodeo-type event at the 2014 Fair, something that hadn’t happened in some time.

Rodeo clowns got their share of the spotlight during the bullfighting event, where they showed off their speed, agility and courage when alone in the ring with a charging bull.
