American Royal – ProRodeo

Guests had three evenings to enjoy the American Royal ProRodeo this May, each with a different theme: Cinco de Mayo, Nurses Day, and Kentucky Derby. The fun commenced with pre-parties featuring food trucks, libations, vendors, and games. Among the PRCA-sanctioned events were bareback riding, steer wrestling, team roping, barrel racing, bull riding, and mutton bustin’. Following all of the excitement, there was entertainment provided by Sons of Sterling, Travis Marvin, and The Cowardly Lions.
