Fox Valley Pro Rodeo returns to Kendall County Fairgrounds
The cowboy and cowgirl culture of America and the Old West was celebrated in all forms last weekend at the Kendall County Fairgrounds near Yorkville, as the Fox Valley Pro Rodeo returned to perform for the fifth year.
Hosted by the Big Hat Rodeo Company, the show featured local, national and world-renowned riders competing in team roping, barrel racing, tie-down roping, bareback bronc riding and bull riding – a crowd favorite.
Visitors also could take part in some pre-show activities, including a coloring contest, bull-riding machine and concessions, before watching the riders from the stands.
Horses will return for the Kendall County Fair, Aug. 1 to 4 at the fairgrounds.
