2013 Tucson Rodeo, held on February 16-24, 2013.
Many Tucson school systems, including Pima Community College, take the third Thursday and Friday off every February for Rodeo Break.
In the 1920s-1960s, the entire community participated in the festivities. That's not the case anymore, but many students still get time off to appreciate the Southwestern fun.
