RENO, Nev. (MyNews4.com & KRNV) -- It's that time of year where everyone in Reno seems to be donning cowboy gear in honor of the annual Reno Rodeo.

The Reno Rodeo is now a 10-day event that began in 1919 and is a PRCA (Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association) sanctioned sporting event. Also a non-profit organization, the Reno Rodeo is made up over 350 volunteers with over 150,000 fans expected in attendance for the 4th richest PRCA tour rodeo. The yearly event impacts the Reno, Sparks area economy with $40 million going to hotels, casinos, restaurants and retail. This past year the Reno Rodeo Foundation donated over $400,000 back to our community.

The ever-popular Reno Rodeo cattle drive returns to rodeo grounds Thursday, and the best place to view the cattle drive if you are looking to catch a glimpse is the corner of Wells and Sutro, in the Salvation Army parking lot. News 4 recommends all schools, day cares and preschools hoping to watch the cattle drive return go to the rodeo grounds to watch at Gate 3, located in the north end.

Officials are asking those coming to watch the return of the cattle drive to not enter the street or even stand on pavement in a street (Sutro, Wells or Oddie) -- RPD will be watching for anyone getting in the way of the cattle procession.

Tickets for the Reno Rodeo are available at renorodeo.com or visit the Lawler Events Center ticket office at the UNR campus. Tickets range in price from $12 to $27 based on seating and performance date.
