The Rodeo Parade Museum, opened in 1964, has provided thousands of visitors a view into the past. Housing a horse-drawn vehicle collection of over 125 wagons and buggies, the museum is located at the Tucson Rodeo Grounds, 4823 S. Sixth Avenue. The museum is sited in structures that once were home to the Pima County Fair livestock show, and the hanger of the original Tucson Municipal Airport; the first municipally owned airport in the United States. Needless to say, after all these years, these structures are in need of renovation.
Each February since 1925, Tucsonans saddle their horses, hitch up their buggies and shine their cowboy boots for the “Celebration of the Cowboys.”
