For down home, authentic Texas fun there’s nothing better than a rodeo. Cowboys and cowgirls of all ages can pull on a pair of boots, grab a hat and relive a little of the history of ranching in the Lone Star State. For residents of Gateway Parks in Forney, these thrills (and SPILLS) are just a few minutes away on US 80 at the world-famous Mesquite Championship Rodeo.
For more than 50 years, the Mesquite Championship Rodeo has entertained families with thrilling rodeo events such as saddle bronc riding, bull riding, barrel racing, team roping and more. Visitors can feast on a delicious barbecue dinner at the onsite BBQ pavilion and hear the best in two-steppin’ music at this authentic Texas experience.
Plus, young buckaroos can saddle up and ride! For those kids who dare, they can sign up to enter a drawing for an unforgettable time participating in some fan-favorite Mutton Bustin’. In Mutton Bustin’ the child climbs onto a wild, wooly sheep and tries to hold on for the best ride of the night.
