Believe it or not, Tucson has rich rodeo roots. Before home developments ranches were part of our desert life. During rodeo, kids at Tucson High School would wear jeans (Yes, at one time kids were not allowed to wear jeans to school. That was a long time ago). Go learn about this past at the Tucson Rodeo Parade Museum, which opens for the season on Monday, Jan. 4 at the Tucson Rodeo Grounds (4823 S. 6th Ave.). Group and school tours are available.
