Do you live in the Raleigh/Durham area and are looking for something fun to do with your family one hot summer night? Then head on down to Carousel Farms off of Louisberg Road in Raleigh. It’s an awesome, family-friendly rodeo show every Tuesday night at 7:30pm through the summer. Gates open at 6pm and there is lots of yummy BBQ for dinner and Lumpy’s ice cream for dessert (that’s my favorite part!)
Admission is $7 and kids under 6 are free. There are pony rides, mechanical bull rides, facepainting (all of which cost a little extra) plus the bull riding, barrel racing and of course, the chicken dance for the kids at the end of the show.
We hit it up last night with my ScanChild crew. The hubby and I paid $5 for the Bug to ride his first pony…for a whopping 45 seconds. But it was totally worth it.
Then, my CEO and I rode the mechanical bull. Huge feat for me as I’ve secretly always wanted to but been a smidge too chicken. Mission accomplished.
