Known as the "Rodeo Capital of Texas," Mesquite, Texas is an eastern suburb of Dallas, Texas.
Rodeos date back to 1941, first in Pleasant Mound, and then two moves later ended up in its present location near Rodeo Drive. The key man behind the rodeos was Charlie McNally -- under his leadership the interest in the rodeo has skyrocketed.
The rodeo has attracted national attention, as it has been broadcast on ESPN, TNN, Fox Sports, and now RFD-TV. At one time it reached over 8 million homes. Chief events in the rodeo include barrel racing, team roping, tie down roping, and steer wrestling. Current facility was recently expanded to include a hotel, convention center, and exhibition hall.
The rodeo season runs roughly from July to October, but events in these facilities basically make it a year round operation.
Obviously there is more the Mesquite than just the rodeo. Founded in 1878, the city was originally just farm land and open prairie. With explosive population growth, amenities were added constantly. For 25 years the city has been named a Tree City USA by the National Arbor Day Foundation -- it has come a long way from just open prairie.
