Calf Scramble
Also known as kid kaios on the hoof! There's no pre-entry required. Just wear your fastest running shoes and
head to the arena floor when the announcer gives instructions.

How it works: Three of the many calves in the arena have ribbons tied on their tail. The kids job is to chase down these young bovines and grab the ribbon. The first 3 to bring a ribbon back to clown wins! Just so everybody gets a chance to play, we have:
