Ranch, Rodeo and Randomness

By Pepper Stewart

In December Las Vegas, Nev., turns into a rodeo town when the National Finals Rodeo kicks off.

There are many equine and rodeo events in Las Vegas during the year, but nothing like what happens in December from endless shopping to daily events. Then in the evening it’s live NFR rodeo action, followed by endless after parties. The town is packed with fans of the western way of life.

How is your local hometown rodeo standing the test of time? Many small-town rodeo arenas are for sale, overgrown and are becoming part of folklore history. Think back to the days before technology took over, maybe the 70’s or ‘80’s, when you waited all year long for the summer rodeo to come to town.
