From crazy bull riding to old school vaqueros, the rodeo is where old Mexican traditions and all-American cowboys meet.
So for this special episode, Latino USA goes to the rodeo! To “La Fiesta de los Vaqueros” in Tucson, Arizona, to be exact. Rodeo is a big deal in Tucson. So much so that schools shut down the last Thursday and Friday of February for Rodeo Weekend. We explore the deep Mexican and Mexican-American roots in rodeo, and feature how one Tucson family is giving the sport their all, despite the odds.
