Davana will be crowned again in the rodeo ring during the opening ceremonies for the first performance rodeo taking place in the Stampede Grounds at 6 p.m. Thursday evening. Both of the other two Stampede Queen contestants, Bobi Bracewell and Alexia Colton, were crowned as Stampede Princesses in a contest that was too close to call.

Rodeo performances are Thursday and Friday evenings at 6 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday at 1 p.m.
