Elizabeth Gallardo and Larissa Castillo arrived early Saturday night to the 30th Annual Los Fresnos Rodeo to relish three decades in the making. Depicted as the biggest little rodeo in Texas, Castillo and Gallardo, both from Los Fresnos, did not want to miss another year full of excitement, fireworks, music, food, and fierce competition.
