Tucson – January 2023 – Rodeo Parade Museum Carriages

Each February Tucson hosts La Fiesta de los Vaqueros, aka the Rodeo. Each year a parade precedes the event, featuring numerous vintage wagons and carriages. A number of buildings on the rodeo grounds hold the museum, which has over 100 of these items.

Because Tucson has long been a home to western movie making, many of them have been featured in Hollywood films.
