LAS VEGAS – The MGM Grand Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas has built a reputation as the place to be for top flight attractions and entertainment.
The crew at Carr Pro Rodeo is developing the same distinction, from its elite animal athletes to brilliant showmanship.
Together the two entities make a pretty solid team. So at rodeos all across this land, Carr Pro Rodeo and MGM Grand have put their partnership on display. Whether it’s in Texas locales like Stephenville, Big Spring and Pecos or in the Oklahoma Panhandle or the Colorado Rockies or in New Mexico, the MGM Grand’s brand is exposed to a diverse group of people, including rodeo fans young and old.
“It’s a privilege and an honor to be associated with such a landmark establishment like the MGM Grand Hotel,” said Pete Carr, owner of Carr Pro Rodeo. “Tim Kelly, the vice president of hotel operations, has been a champion this year to our company and many other cowboys and cowgirls. He brings an incredibly high level of excitement and passion to the sport of rodeo. What sets them apart is the fact that the MGM Grand makes everyone who stays with them and anyone who visits feel like a champion.”
“Our rodeos are a great way for MGM Grand to get its information out to the people who are always looking for some great entertainment. Personally I think it’s a nice fit for us, because when you think of Las Vegas entertainment, you think of MGM Grand. We want Carr Pro Rodeo to be what people think about when they think of rodeo.”
Pete Carr and his crew will be part of the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo when it takes place Dec. 2-11 at the Thomas & Mack Center. It’s the season-ending championship in the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association, featuring the top cowboys and the best stock in the sport from 2010.
In relatively short period of time, Carr Pro Rodeo has been recognized as one of the up-and-coming livestock and rodeo producers in North America. Carr recognizes it takes an experienced and passionate staff, fantastic animal athletes and a little luck to produce memorable rodeos.
“It’s a lot like staying at the MGM Grand, where you can take in a show like Cirque du Soliel’s KA or go to one of the many clubs, excellent restaurants or just enjoy the great casino action,” Carr said. “We do what we can to promote MGM Grand at every rodeo we produce, and they roll out the red carpet when we come to town for the big show.”
