Thousands attended Effie rodeo, despite crowd restrictions
July 27, 2020
Despite orders to limit crowds, the stands remained full or nearly full for the three days of the 65th annual North Star Stampede Rodeo in Effie in northern Minnesota.
Thousands showed up to what is known as the state's largest outdoor rodeo even though the Minnesota Department of Health and the state Attorney General's Office imposed a spectator limit at the event.
The most recent phase of Gov. Tim Walz's Stay Safe Minnesota Plan limits outdoor events and entertainment to 250 people who are social distanced.
