A huge announcement was made just two short days ago that will greatly impact a historic professional rodeo event in Las Vegas, Nevada. Sin City will, once again, turn country during the main part of the season that they call “spring break”. The Professional Bull Riders and its Built Ford Tough Series will end the first half of the 2016 season by bringing the bull riding excitement back to Las Vegas as the top 35 bull riders in the world will compete against each other for their share of prize money and some much needed world championship points!
Since 1934 the legendary Las Vegas Helldorado Days has been a mainstay in the old downtown district of the city’s limits. The Las Vegas Centennial and the Las Vegas Elks hope to reenergize the event for Las Vegas’ 111th birthday celebration this coming May. For those of you have have been to this event before or are planning on visiting it for your first time this year you can expect all of the same excitement and flair that you have seen in the past including the downtown parade, carnival, art show & auction, golf tournament, whiskerino contest and a PRCA-sanctioned rodeo.
