Attendance for National Finals Rodeo at Thomas & Mack Center neared 170,000 for its 10-day run.
The official number was 168,952 for the 10 consecutive sellouts for the Super Bowl of rodeos.
It’s a vital shot in the economic arm for the Strip, and other hotel-casinos from The D to South Point during a slower time between Thanksgiving and Christmas.
The Dec. 7-16 NFR also brings hundreds of vendors to places including the Las Vegas Convention Center, South Point and Mandalay Bay.
There were also 56 concerts and 37 locations that offered the NFR live feed.
LVSportsBiz.com also reported on big news during the NFR, such as the transfer of the rodeo’s general manager reins from Shawn Davis to Boyd Polhamus.
