(KUTV) Kem Gardner is the chair of the Days of '47 Rodeo, which kicks of on July 19th.

And there will be much more than just a rodeo this year.

"We have 15 acres of a 'family fun zone,'" said Gardner.

According to Gardner, there will be a carnival, a livestock show, mutton-busting, and more.

"We'll have everything for kids out there, so that families can come and spend the afternoon," he said.

This year's rodeo is being called the "Cowboy Games," because contestants will be competing for gold, silver, and bronze medals.

There will also be fireworks, a cowboy poet, and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir will perform.

"It's going to work big," said Gardner. "The people on the west side have felt neglected and they're really excited that some life and activity has been brought back to the fairgrounds."
