If your only experience with Central Florida is as a home to major attractions like Walt Disney World and Universal Studios Florida, you probably have no idea of Kissimmee’s cattle country heritage and the annual Silver Spurs Rodeo. Along with oranges, Florida is a major beef and dairy producer, which you can read about on the Fresh From Florida website, and it has a rich history in the cattle industry. Given that background, it’s especially fitting that Kissimmee is home to the Silver Spurs Rodeo, the largest event of its kind east of the Mississippi.
