Today marks the final day of the 2017 Black Hills Stock Show & Rodeo in Rapid City, but once again the 10-day show had a great ride.

Thousands of people came to Rapid City to show and sell cattle, compete or watch rodeo events, or just to commiserate with members of the Great Plains farming and ranching community.

The Rapid City Journal was there for it all, and to send off the show in style, we're publishing the best images of the show and all its participants on this final day.

We hope you enjoy the fine work done by Journal photographers, and we'll see you next year in the rodeo ring.
