Pikes Peak or Bust Rodeo is one of the top rodeos in the U.S. and draws over 500 of the best cowboys and cowgirls from across the country to compete for nearly $200,000 in prize money. This Wrangler Million Dollar Tour Rodeo is one of the nation’s premier competitions sanctioned by the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA). Close to 30,000 fans come out to see action-packed events such as bull riding, team roping, steer wrestling, saddle bronc riding, and everyone’s favorite – mutton bustin'. Outside the arena there is also much to enjoy from pony rides, mutton bustin’ tryouts, performing pigs, great food, and shopping.
The 73rd Annual Pikes Peak or Bust Rodeo Parade is July 9, 2013 at 6:30 p.m., heading down Tejon Street through the heart of downtown Colorado Springs. Free to watch and fun for the whole family, this beloved Western cultural event kicks off the annual Pikes Peak or Bust Rodeo in grand fashion. Money raised by parade entries and parade program goes toward direct assistance to our local military and their families.
