Welcome to Tucson

Tucson Rodeo Parade




Feb. 24, 1971 Mr. and Mrs. Otto R. Eicher (in noose) were welcomed to Tucson's Fiesta de los Vaqueros in traditional western style today, as the city's Vigilantes and Barbara Bell, a rodeo princess, told them to reach for the sky on Interstate 10-and stick around for five days, courtesy of the City of Tucson and Tucson Jaycees. The Eichers, from Sandusky, Ohio, were selected at random.

1. Thanks for posting.

We moved to Tucson in 1962 and I went to high school there. I loved Rodeo Week because of the unexpected four day weekend. Do the schools there still close on Thursday and Friday of that week?
