Tucson's annual celebration of the cowboys has been heralded as Southern Arizona's oldest and most celebrated heritage event since its inception in 1925. It's centered around the Tucson Rodeo, one of the top 25 rodeos on the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) calendar, at which the sport's best cowboys and cowgirls compete in six rodeo performances. The fun also includes the Tucson Rodeo Parade, billed as the longest non-motorized (horse-drawn) parade in the world. An estimated 150,000 spectators line the parade route to see over 150 western-theme floats and buggies, Mexican folk dancers and marching musical groups.
