space
The Northwoods Triple Crownâ€known as a celebration of bulls, barrels and barbecueâ€will offer a salute to the logging camps that once dotted the region when it returns to the Langlade County Fairgrounds this weekend.

Now in its third year, the event opens Friday, with a full iternary continuing through Sunday afternoon.

The weekend's highlight is the return of Bulls & Barrels, with professional cowboys riding the toughest bucking bulls on the circuit in front of the grandstand.

Along with the bulls comes barrels, with the horses and riders from across the Midwest completing the cloverleaf barrel-pattern. Horsemanship, speed and finesses all combine for the fastest times.

That action kicks off Saturday at 7 p.m. in front of the grandstand.

Along with Saturday night's racing, equestrians will return to the arena on Sunday, at 10 a.m. for the Menominee Casino Resort Cowgirl Challenge. They will compete in three eventsâ€barrel racing, pole bending and an obstacle courseâ€for a chance to be named the 2019 Cowgirl Challenge Champion and earn a trophy saddle.

The third B in the Triple Crown is Barbecue, the Northwoods Grill Masters challenge presented by Lakeside Market and Fleet Farm.

Competitors, many of them local teams, will showcase their skills in an afternoon of grilling and judging. Sticks of ribs will be available for sale and diners are encourage to participate in Peoples Choice Tasting beginning at 1 p.m. Cost is $5 for five sticks and $7 for eight sticks, with proceeds to benefit youth organizations.

The cookoff will also feature a friendly rivalry between city of Antigo firefighters and the grillers from the Langlade County Sheriff's Department.

There's much more on the docket as well, including a Buffalo Bill re-enactment, mounting shooting, and a salute to the days of the logging camps

Action kicks off Friday with a horsemanship/dressage exhibition at 5 p.m.

At 5:30 p.m. “Meet the Legends” with the Wisconsin Historical Society program on Buffalo Bill, voted best program winner by the board of curators.

A logging camp picnic supper is slated for 6 p.m., along with an opportunity to meet the Triple Crown queen contestants. The menu include stews, flapjacks and pies. Adult tickets are $11, and youth, $8 at the door. Youth tickets are available for free when accompanied by an adult buy but be reserved in advance.

After dinner, explore legacy logging with the big draft horses from Jason Julian farms.

Saturday opens with a mounted shooting competition from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Cowboys and cowgirls on horseback will compete to shoot out balloon targets with black powder pistols while running a course.

From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. see history come to life with Buffalo Bill's Best of the Wild West boomtown camp. There will also be a performance at 4 p.m.
