This is national Public Works week, and to celebrate, Tulsa is playing host to the fourth annual equipment rodeo.

Fifty contestants from across Oklahoma compete in five skill challenging events, using some very big equipment. Wednesday, the men competed in backhoe golf and the bulldozer log roll.

The purpose of the rodeo is so public works personnel can demonstrate how safely they run the big rigs.
