Recap: June 8th Downtown Raleigh Rodeo

The second of the four part rodeo series in Downtown Raleigh.

Over an estimated 10,000 people flowed through Downtown Raleigh on Fayetteville Street and its intersecting streets.  These rodeos garner attention from Triangle residents and food trucks from the area.  This time The Herban Legend came from Charlotte, Camel City Grill from the Triad area (we have others, but this is first time I recall them making the trek east on 40), and The Catch from Wilmington.
