The excitement was palpable as the 4th of July festivities officially kicked off with the 6th annual Family Night at Mandan Rodeo Days! Families from all around Bismarck-Mandan came out before the start of the rodeo to enjoy free hot dogs, chips, cookies, and water.

Thanks to everyone who came out - it was a great time! Check out some of the best shots from the night.
