Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo

***Disclosure-No compensation was received.  Informational post only.

I'm sure many people think us Texans are all cowboys and cowgirls. We wear boots and all have farms. We still ride horses and BBQ is our everyday meal. Well no it is not. But once a year I do become a cowgirl. HLSR has a scholarship program that helps students go to college. I support that. Education is very important to me. Many of us here in Houston grew up wanting to ride horses and bulls, and wanting to raise a pig after leaving the HLSR events. There are so many events to attend where people like me and you can help someone go to college simply by attending. Every year when I was in school we would take our annual trip to the Livestock Show. They have a petting zoo for kids, and many activities. It is a part of Houston and Texas history. I don't live on a farm, don't ride horses, and I don't talk with a twang. But I do love BBQ, like attending the concerts, and of course love seeing the animals every year. The HLSR has kept its prices very fair. I remember growing up paying $10 at the gate to get in to all the activities, i.e. rodeo concert, carnival, livestock show, etc... Their prices have gone up a little but where can you go for $16 now a days and have this much fun. My most memorable concert was the Selena concert. I went to see her at the Rodeo. She looked so beautiful. We had so much fun that night. Before and after the concert, we hungout at the carnival enjoying the Turkey legs, and funnel cakes. So this year I recommend you and the family take a trip out to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.
