March is here and one of Arizona’s most popular rodeos is back! Rodeo Scottsdale is proud to present 66 years of Professional Rodeo entertainment in the heart of North Scottsdale, Arizona. While Parada del Sol is known for its top-notch rodeo thrills and spills, that’s not the only action Rodeo Scottsdale will be bringing to the table. Through its great success each year, The Parada del Sol Rodeo continues to make a massive impact in the community.
