The National Finals Rodeo completed finished 10 nights of competition Saturday in Las Vegas. Here are highlights from the entire event.
The final rodeo of the year is a competition among the 15 top money-winners in eight rodeo events — bareback riding, steer wrestling, team roping, saddle bronc riding, tie-down roping, steer roping, bull riding and barrel racing.
Official forecasts expected 170,750 attendees for the event, but that just covers the full house at the Thomas &Mack for 10 performances. The conservative economic impact estimate is $113 million.
Viewing parties, concerts, charitable events and shopping expos continued to grow this year.
