Kids’ events add to rodeo fun

Listen to this post

MEEKER I The Ranch Rodeo, when local ranches compete against each other in events taken from daily ranch living, is accompanied by another thoroughly enjoyable spectator sport: the kids’ events.
There’s nothing quite like watching a herd of toddlers tumble into a heap of straw in search of treasures.
Sponsored by the recreation district, the kids’ events provide a show for the ranch rodeo crowd and entertainment for hot, thirsty kids who might just be bored watching the rodeo.
Children as young as 1-year-old and up to the age of 12 “compete” in all kinds of activities designed to show kids a good, albeit messy, time.
Held on the track in front of the grandstands, the kids’ events are free with admission to the Ranch Rodeo and begin at 11 a.m. Sunday.
Be prepared for dirty, wet or gooey kids to join you in the grandstands afterward.
