This is an evening out to true cowboy land here in Southern Osceola County, where the original American Cowboys came from! Roundtrip transportation is included down to the dude ranch, where upon arrival guests will enjoy a BBQ style dinner experience.
Enjoy a family-style cookout buffet at the East Corral – that includes barbecue chicken, hotdogs, corn on the cob, fries, baked beans and a selection of beverage options. Experience an old-fashioned, tractor-pulled hayride at Westgate River Ranch that takes you into the beautiful, 7,000-acre KICCO Wildlife Management Area (KICCO stands for “Kissimmee Island Cattle Company), which runs along the Kissimmee River. View wildlife as you are entertained by the talents of a singing cowboy who belts out classics and popular contemporary tunes, as well as provides interesting trivia about the KICCO Wildlife Management Area.
On your 45-minute Hayride adventure, you might be lucky enough to see wildlife such as white-tailed deer, bald eagles, wild hogs, hawks, sand hill cranes, wading birds, cows, bulls, alligators and wild turkeys. Following our hayride we are off to the rodeo!! Eight seconds may not seem like a long time, but when you’re watching a bull rider trying to stay on a bucking bull, it seems like an eternity. Be mesmerized by the excitement and unpredictable danger of the Saturday Night Rodeo for an evening of family fun at the 1,200-seat rodeo arena. This fun-filled weekly rodeo draws rodeo athletes from all over to compete in trick riding, calf roping, barrel racing and, of course, bull riding. The rodeo is a guest favourite as you get the opportunity to view talented contestants and also enjoy a patriotic tribute to our armed forces.
In addition to enjoying the rodeo spectacle, little cowpokes can participate in a real “calf scramble” where boys and girls try to remove a ribbon from a calf’s tail. The first one to get the ribbon receives the prize! The fun doesn’t stop once the rodeo ends! If you feel bull riding isn’t that tough, take a spin on our new Mechanical Bull. Or get your feet moving to the lively Dance Party where kids can sing, dance and compete in games while the lively DJ entertains the crowd with tunes such as “Macarena,” “Electric Slide” and even “Cotton Eyed Joe.” Just outside the River Ranch Saloon where you’ll hear music and games from a lively DJ to end a fun evening. This is a great alternative way to spend a Saturday night whilst in town!
