Tucson rodeo was big success

Citizen Staff Writer
Our Opinion

Congratulations to organizers of the Tucson rodeo, which saw a huge attendance spike from last year.

More than 50,000 people attended the 84th annual La Fiesta de los Vaqueros, which ended Sunday. That’s up 31 percent from 2008′s attendance.

Good weather throughout the event was the major factor in bringing people to the Tucson Rodeo Grounds. And while Tucson has grown to be a sprawling metropolitan area, it still is a boots-and-jeans town at its core.

The rodeo brings in many out-of-towners and is a solid boost for the local economy – something that cannot be overlooked during the current recession.

Thanks to the rodeo organizers for another great run.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
