K & M Rentals: The One Stop Rental Shop

Osceola County Cattle Drive and RAM National Circuit Finals Rodeo Recap

Cattle has always been an important part of the history of Kissimmee. The streets of downtown Kissimmee were once grass where cattle roamed freely and grazed; effectively providing a mowing service. There is even a well-known story about a cow finding its way into the Kissimmee courthouse! It is only fitting that today we celebrate this history with a cattle drive that begins on the lawn of the courthouse and continues into downtown Kissimmee. This exciting event is the kickoff for the RAM National Circuit Finals Rodeo at Osceola County’s Silver Spurs Rodeo.
