You might notice a lot of cowboy hats around Las Vegas today as the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo returns to the Thomas & Mack and runs through December 16th. The event features the top 15 contestants in rodeo events such bull riding, barrel racing, steer wrestling, team roping and tie down roping. The rodeo finals should have an attendance of approximately 170,000 over its ten day run. Because of the huge crowds in town for the rodeo finals the entertainment often is changed during the duration so expect a lot of big name country stars performing around town.
