For more than 60 years, the Associación de San Antonio has been entertaining Fiesta crowds with a traditional Mexican rodeo, or charreada, during A Day in Old Mexico. The event—a celebration of the national sport of Mexico and the grandfather of modern American rodeo—offers patrons the chance to take in a rich custom and tradition. On April 22, charros will don the traditional traje de charro complete with embroidered pants, sombreros, and boots, all while dazzling the crowd with variations of horse reining, bull and bronco riding, artistic roping skills, escaramuzas (female side-saddle riding), and more team sports.
