At the Little Boots Rodeo, families help their children participate in 12 events in a noncompetitive atmosphere -- a shooting gallery, mechanical bull, cow milking, corn stripping, barrel race, bronco riding, lassoing, bows and arrows, panning for gold and more.

Children will be certified as an official Cowboy or Cowgirl onstage, have their name announced over the speaker and receive an award.

A donation of one canned food item is requested for various Elk Grove Township food pantries.

The rodeo is organized and sponsored by the Little Boots Foundation in Elk Grove Village. Certification events entrance fee is $10 per punch card (only one child per punch card). Price includes hot dog and drink.
