Surrounding the stadium in which the Cowboy contests take place, there is a fair. As you walk through the fair you will see exciting rides and food stalls. You will also see many pieces of clothing or decorative items made from livestock animals. Leather bags, shoes, cow skins, and wool blankets are very popular. Inside another building on the same campus are the animals. Farmers bring their biggest animals to be seen by a panel of judges. Whoever has the biggest animals wins!
After you walk around the fair, and have seen the cowboys, there is a concert. Many major artists such as Alicia Keys and The Chainsmokers come to Houston, Texas to perform. Country singers come as well. The concerts are astounding, and everyone finds themselves talking about them for weeks.
The Texas rodeo experience is something I truly thought I would never have. Though it was a surprise, I really enjoyed my time there. I would encourage anyone interested in Cowboys and Indians, farming, and music to come.
