“Las Vegas Helldorado Days were a long-held tradition, and we are excited to welcome the rodeo back home to downtown Las Vegas this year,” said Jonathan Jossel, CEO of the Plaza Hotel & Casino. “We are proud of our history and now with the Plaza’s Core Arena, we can pay homage to our western roots while offering an unforgettable experience for today’s residents and visitors. We appreciate the support of the Commission for the Las Vegas Centennial and look forward to working with the city of Las Vegas on creating an exciting rodeo event that brings our community together where Las Vegas got its start – downtown Las Vegas.”
