The Mesquite Championship Rodeo's Christmas Rodeos will feature bull riding, barrel racing, kids' mutton bustin' and a motorcycle daredevil. But nobody goes to rodeos for that: They go for the clowns. Other than maybe being an EMT in some drug-crazed third-world banana republic, is there any other job where you have to dodge an enormous bloodthirsty animal and drag an injured man to safety--all while wearing makeup and trying to make a crowd of spectators laugh? Gates open at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday at Resistol Arena, 1818 Rodeo Drive in Mesquite. Tickets are $6 to $11. Call 972-285-8777 or visit mesquiterodeo.com.
Dec. 29-30, 6:30 p.m., 2009
