Being from Texas, I wanted my kids to experience an authentic rodeo in a small western town. The Wild West Yellowstone Rodeo was very cute and perfect for the setting. You could tell the announcer had been doing this a long time and was having fun with it. I got a sense that the rodeo participants were all local "regulars" that took turns in the events. They had a cute kid's calf scramble where all the kids tried to pull the ribbon off it's tail. There was not much action in the rodeo part but the show part was great fun. My kids loved it! We did end up going to the Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo at the end of our trip just so I could show my kids what a professional rodeo was like (which, by the way, was cheaper than this one).
