Reliving Alberta's ranching roots has been a trying task ever since Hollywood Westerns fell out of vogue and your 10-gallon hat was ruined by that 10-gallon guacamole recipe. Go west with this GrouponLive deal to see the Canadian Finals Rodeo at Rexall Place. For $48, you get two tickets for 200-level seating in rows 32–41 for the event on Sunday, November 11, at 1 p.m. (a $95.50 value, including all fees). Seats within designated sections will be assigned at the box office on a first-come, first-served basis. Doors—and the box office—open at 11:30 a.m. on Sunday.
Since 1974, the Canadian Finals Rodeo has drawn fans to Edmonton to see some of the sport's best riders and livestock compete in a heart-bucking display of cowboy skills in pursuit of a prize purse that totals more than $1.4 million. The event's most physically demanding competition, bareback riding, pits man against horse as riders must stay on bucking steeds with only a single hand on the reins. A full bill of classic rodeo events includes steer wrestling, team roping, and tie-down roping—all challenges that pale in comparison to the dangerous art of bull riding. On November 11, specialty act Niki Flundra performs tricks on horseback for her 14th consecutive Canadian Finals Rodeo, and singer Aaron Pritchett leads the stadium in the national anthem as the bulls raise their hooves to their horns in salute.
