I love, love, love the rodeo! Did you know that this is the 78th year of the HLSR? 22,000 Houstonians volunteer annually to make it a success! "It's the world's largest livestock exhibition, world's richest regular-season rodeo and the Southwest's premier entertainment event." In 2009 almost 2 million people attended the rodeo making it the third largest fair or festival in North America. Since 1932 the rodeo has contributed more than $250 million to schalorships, research and other educational programs. And if that isn't enough...the mutton busting is sure to be a hit!
It's so much fun, this year we're going with a group of friends to see the Black Eyed Peas - I can't wait!!
