Having never been to a rodeo before this one last night did not disappoint.

Although the bull riders were young there was plenty of enthusiasm and a spirit of get out there and beat the bull. The bulls were the definite winners during the evening. There was even one that didn't want to leave the area arena and entertained the crowd lol. Refreshments were available and prices in keeping with other watering holes in the area. We didnt try the corn but it did look mouth watering and juicy,We had hot dogs & burgers which were nice. The fries were inconsistent which is extremely hard to do, two portions were hot (one was extremely greasy) the third portion was cold, hard and overcooked, as if they'd been put in an oven to keep warm but left too long then mixed in with a few soggy chips.
This didn't detract from our enjoyment of the evening

It had rained plenty this week in Kissmmee and the grass/ground was wet especially slippery near the entrances to the covered seats. This might be a consideration to be addressed for rodeo night when it gets dark when people are leaving.

We'd planned to go here before leaving home and were really looking forward to seeing a rodeo. We weren't disappointed, it was a great nights entertainment, not just a show but local entrants competing for placing points in bull riding, barrel racing and roping. For how long the rodeo went on it was a cheap price for a really good evenings entertainment. There are staged seats under cover to shelter you from the sun (or rain) and basic food like burgers & fries available.
The only down side if you visit after it has rained is that you have to park on a grassy area, not bad in itself but it slopes towards the entrance and the water gathers there and forms a muddy pool that you have to paddle through (not very customer orientated when it could easily be overcome) all in all though I would go again.

Rodeo never fails to deliver fun and excitement for all, run by local it was a great nights entertainment and very cheap would recommend the corn which was delicious. They could improve in the directions by having a sign up on 192

We've never been a rodeo before, so when we saw an advert in a mag we decided to go along. The "local" participation added to the friendly and vibrant feel to the evening. Those guys and girls taking part are strong and brave beyond belief.

The audience ranged from young children to grand parents, all seemed to have an equally good time. A very large part of the audience seemed to be from the UK.

OK, I'm sure there are larger and more professional rodeo's in America but this was an excellent night out.

As a family we had a great evening, and will definitely return next time we're in Florida.
