On Thursday of Round Up week I went to the rodeo, where breast cancer survivors wearing pink shirts, walked into the middle of the arena and formed a circle.

Our family of 5 (3 teenagers) just LOVED the round up. I can't rate this more highly. This was our first rodeo and we loved the bull riding; Indian relays; bare back riding ; sterr wresting etc - it was sensational. Absolutely go, go, go.

All the events in and around the stadium were exciting and crowded but lots of fun. The rodeo was as expected, lots of noise and excitement until the Steer Roping event. I have never seen any animals treated so badly. The steers were ripped off...More

You can see the rodeo from all sides of the arena. North grandstands are the best but you can see just as well from south, east or west seats.

There are several park and ride buses that run. I'm not sure of all the parking locations but Wildhorse Casino is one and should have a bus that is handicap accessible.
