Reno Rodeo enters 89th year

The “Wildest, Richest Rodeo in the West,” the Reno Rodeo, kicked of its 89th showing Thursday with a cattle drive and the promise of more great events over 10 days in Reno.

No other event has a longer tenure in Reno – the rodeo dates all the way back to the days when Reno was little more than a western outpost sprung from the riches of the silver mining boom. Over the decades, it has evolved into one of the most prestigious of rodeo tour stops, with events as diverse as “Dodge Xtreme Bulls” and the “Wrangler World’s Greatest Roper.”

In addition to the normal slate of competitive events, the rodeo puts a premium on family fun with a parade, entertainment and a carnival-like atmosphere. Check out this great event, and bring the family. You won’t be disappointed.
