Third annual Northwoods Triple Crown takes place this weekend
ANTIGO - If people want see bulls, cowgirls or grill masters or just say 'giddyup,' it will all appear at the Northwoods Triple Crown from July 12-14. 
This three-day event at the Langlade County Fairgrounds will bring in people across the Midwest. 

Professional bull riders and barrel racers will compete for cash and prizes. There will also be challenges for cowgirls and grill masters. 

Event organizer Shaughn Novy said it's a great way for people to see bull riding up close and personal.

"The best thing about it is the excitement," said Novy. "Because we're up close and personal in Antigo with those bulls, so you're just like 50-75 feet away from those bucking bulls."

This is the third year of the event.

The theme this year is horse power. Many horses will be shown off to signify the importance of equine history in the state. 

There will also be shows with characters like Buffalo Bill. 

"When Buffalo bill came back to this country, it was the show to see and he was probably the most recognized person on earth," said Wayne Rettig, who plays Buffalo Bill. 

The Bulls and Barrels performance will take place on Saturday. Then the 2019 Cowgirl Challenge will be Sunday.

The Northwoods Queen Challenge takes place on Friday and Saturday.
