Annual American Royal: BBQ, Horse Shows and Cattle

Having its roots in the 1899 National Hereford Show, the American Royal Livestock, Horse Show and Rodeo is the Midwest's oldest and largest annual agricultural celebration -- a Kansas City tradition that features world-class horse and livestock competitions, one of the top ten PRCA rodeos, and many educational and scholarship programs that foster the development of tomorrow's leaders.

Originally submitted by: Karen McCarthy, Representative (5th District).
