COTTONWOOD, Calif. - In Shasta County, hundreds came out to celebrate the 58th annual Cottonwood Mother’s Day Rodeo.

A sign posted outside the rodeo ground before entering asked people to practice safety precautions.

In a statement earlier this week, public health said they advised the organizer, Jeff Davis, to cancel or postpone the event.

Over the weekend Action News Now spoke with the Shasta County Sheriff’s Department and they said they were not going to enforce the stay-at-home order.

The rodeo still went on as planned, people coming out for different reasons.

"Everything we had scheduled this year has been canceled and we want to go out," said attendee James Wells. "My wife wanted to go out, so her wish is my command, we’re here."

"If they want to come out here and do their own thing, they should have every right to with no repercussions," said attendee Clayton Fraughton. "If people want to come out and risk their health, that’s fine with me.

Throughout the rodeo grounds, there were multiple handwashing stations, people brought their own alcohol and there were multiple food trucks. And of course, rodeo events went on as planned

The rodeo took place at the Bobby Jones Arena in Cottonwood.
