It’s the most wonderful time of the year! That’s what we are singing these days. The holidays are fast approaching, which means Las Vegas is getting ready for its annual cowboy takeover! Though we are excited for all of the joy the holiday season brings, we are also very excited about our boots, chaps and cowboy hats! Rodeo fans, get ready, as the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association’s Wrangler National Finals Rodeo is upon us, coming up December 1-10 in Las Vegas at the Thomas & Mack Center.
We hope whether you plan to attend or watch from the comfort of your home, that you’ll cheer on your own hometown circuit cowboys and cowgirls!
Our circuit contestants spend a lot of their time over the course of the year traveling and trying to earn enough money or win enough rodeos to be able to participate in the “Super Bowl of rodeo”, the WNFR. For most, it’s a dream come true when they qualify to participate and compete in Las Vegas. It’s a BIG chance to chase a BIG purse on a world stage! Winning a world title at the WNFR means reaching the pinnacle in a cowboy or cowgirl’s rodeo career. The most intense #braggingrights in the sport of rodeo, to be sure!
Want to know who made the cut for the WNFR? We are thrilled to announce our own circuit cowboys and cowgirls that will be participating!

If you plan to travel to Las Vegas this December, be sure to swing by our RNCFR booth on Rodeo Way during Cowboy Christmas. Okay, well, perhaps you won’t just “swing by”, as you can spend practically a week in there shopping! But, please, come by and see us. We have a special way that you can experience Kissimmee, Florida through virtual reality. You can meet “Fluffy”, our real live Wild Florida alligator, and walk away with lots of free rodeo swag! Hope to see you there!
