Mock City Rodeos

 

This rodeo provides parents and children of all ages with fun opportunities to roll play while developing their road awareness and safety skills. Participants can choose to be a pedestrian or a bike driver, deciding what they want to do and where they want to go in a mini-city complete with roads, signs, and buildings.  These are great for community events!
