Members of the rodeo committee are more than pleased to have them open the show this year.
"They're just invaluable to have around, he protocol of the flag and the protocol the great deal of what they do, they know it and they're very very good at it. So any questions we have as far as addressing the flag or what have, they can answer those questions for us and it makes for a better show."
The Marine Corp color guard helps start off the Twin Falls county fair rodeo on a patriotic note.
"It's an honor to want to ride the national colors and especially here at the rodeo it's the salt of the earth here it's the best place you could ever be."
"If there is anything in the world that's a patriotic time, it's probably a county fair and rodeo in particular has always been a patriotic event and it just seemed like that anytime you can have someone of stature of the united states marine corps guard that people love to see it."
The Marine Corps color guard hopes that they can open for the fair in upcoming years.
