Kid's Mutton Bustin' is open to children ages 4-7 and weigh no more than 60 pounds. Must pre-enter to participate as space is limited.
We will start taking entries Wednesday, August 16, 2023 at 10 am (no early birds please!) at Cotton's Cowboy Corral, located at 320 5th St, Marysville. This year you must physically come in with your child to enter, no faxed or emailed forms will be accepted. Must show proof of health insurance and birth certificate to participate.
There is a $45.00 entry fee which includes 1 adult and 1 child's rodeo ticket. This is not a judged contest! Each child is a "winner" and will receive a souvenir T-shirt and other goodies from our sponsors for participating.
Entries are on a first come, first serve basis. Once each days entries are filled, entries are closed.
*Please do not come, the day of the rodeo and expect to enter your child on site. No exceptions!
Kid's Coin Dig
During the Gold Rush, miners stood hip deep in the ice-cold waters of the Yuba and Feather Rivers to find a flake of gold. Area kids have it much easier these days!
Children will have the opportunity to strike silver or gold during the Kid's Coin Dig, sponsored by Rabobank.
Children 10 and under will be called out in the arena and asked to grab hands and form a circle. Once in the circle, they will drop hands and turn around towards the audience and 100 silver or gold dollar coins will be tossed on the ground within the circle. The announcer will instruct the children to turn around and run to find their fortune.
Kid's love this event and it gives them the opportunity to participate in the performance too!
The coloring contest is provided by the Appeal-Democrat in partnership with the official Coloring Contest sponsor: Grange Co-Op.
Pick up a copy of the Appeal-Democrat newspaper (on any of these days: August 11, 15, 16, 18, 23, 25, 26 or 30), color and drop by Grange Co-Op for entry.
