It is time to put on your cowboy hat on and march to this extraordinary event, The La Fiesta De Los Vaqueros Tucson Rodeo. In this event, your cowboy fantasy comes to reality. It’s all about celebrating the cowboys and it goes all the way back in 1925 when the first cowboy event was hosted and lasted for 3 days, but it has all evolved with the event lasting for 9 days nowadays. The Tusco Rodeo parade is billed as the world’s longest non-motorized parade. Around 200000 spectators from different parts of the globe gather around to watch these spectacular scenes annually. This two-hour spectacle features historic horse-drawn coaches, festive Mexican folk dancers, outfitted riders, western-themed floats and buggies, and marching bands.
The event enlists over 450 contestants from Canada and USA thus giving the visitors an opportunity to see real-life cowboys and cowgirls as they showcase their capabilities in the only sport in the world developed from work skills. The Rodeo events include; bareback and saddle bronic riding, steer wrestling, tie-down roping bull riding, women barrel racing, and team roping.
You can also have your kids watch other kids participate in the event, but they will not be riding on horses and the mercurial bulls, they will be riding on relatively inferior animals. Four to six-year-old children will test their riding skills on a sheep in the RAM Mutton Bustin’ and the Justin Junior Rodeo for young cowpokes aged 7-12. After the last bull bucks, there will be some scintillating live music, great eats, and cowboy galore.
The event will be held at the Tucson Rodeo grounds 4823 S 6th Ave in the USA.
