The 4th of July weekend in Bismarck-Mandan is officially underway with the kickoff of the Mandan Rodeo Days!

All the stations and personalities of the stations of Townsquare Media were out tonight to give the first 1200 people through the gates at the Mandan Rodeo Grounds a free dinner of Cloverdale hot dogs, chips and water from Sam's Club, and cookies as they entered.

Check out the photos above, and make sure to come see us as we continue to celebrate the nation's birthday all this weekend!
