Princess Leila Smith has livestock at her house, and her family has been involved in the rodeo forever as well.

“We have events for the kids, we have the Exceptional Rodeo, and Nickel Scramble, where they get to look for nickels and win prizes,” she said. Plus there’s a parade!

Things kick off with Family Night on Thursday, where you can get two adults and five kids in for $40.
