DENVER (AP) - The 106-year-old National Western Stock Show says it wants to stay in Denver.
The announcement Tuesday appears to put an end to the show's plans to build new facilities outside the city.
Stock show officials had considered moving to the east Denver suburb of Aurora, and the two cities jointly applied for state subsidies to help build a new facility and a hotel.
Denver pulled out of the deal last December after some City Council members raised concerns about losing the show.
The stock show and rodeo are held every January. Attendance often tops 600,000.
