For 10 days in December the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo transforms the look and feel of Las Vegas in a spectacular way. Each year, thousands of rodeo enthusiasts decked out in Wrangler jeans, cowboy boots and outsized hats fill Las Vegas hotels, casinos, restaurants, showrooms, and shopping malls. You don’t have to be a cowboy or cowgirl to have the time of your life. However the Wrangler NFR might just make a cowboy out of you after 10 days of competition and entertainment.
Let’s face it, Las Vegas is known for doing everything big. The National Finals Rodeo is no exception. From the minute you arrive in Sin City, you will find action and entertainment everywhere to look. The Vegas strip is full of the rodeo spirit as hotel marquees are splashed with the names of the brightest stars in country music and casinos try to out-do each other with NFR entertainment and specials.
