About 100,000 people packed the Cloverdale Fairgrounds over the long weekend to take in the 127th fair and annual rodeo.

The country fair showcased world-class skateboarders, pig racing, lumberjack shows and the midway rides, to name a few.

Organizers say more than 85,000 packed the fair and 23,000 attended the rodeo.

Even with the added seating, the rodeo saw two back-to-back sellouts for Saturday and sunday performances.

Organizers say it was one of the best turnouts in decades.

The 69th annual rodeo showcased the world’s stop cowboys and cowgirls competing for $325,000 in prize money.
