San Antonio Livestock Show & Rodeo
Hey, this is Texas, and every self—respecting city here has a rodeo. This one just happens to be one of the best and the largest. It kicks off with the Cowboy Breakfast, an intimate gathering of more than 55,000 rodeo fans feasting on free breakfast tacos and biscuits and listening to local bands. The stock show and rodeo itself includes more than two weeks of Professional Rodeo Cowboy Association (PRCA) rodeos, livestock shows, concert performances by big—name stars, the Family Fair with rides, games, and arts and crafts. Admission fees vary depending on the event.
Anyone planning travel to San Antonio and has time to check out a Rodeo definately needs to! Recently went to the San Antonio Livestock and Rodeo at the AT&T Center... WOW, what an event!! Awesome night and experience all together!!!
I attended the San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo last year expecting to see nothing but people in cowboy hats and boots. What I learned is that, not only is there an impressive rodeo (with a laser light show and high-quality music), but they bring in top-notch musical acts, as well.
I took my daughter and her 3 friends to see Hillary Duff perform on the last night of the rodeo. It was interesting to see a sold out show of a teenage pop star performed on the same grounds as the bull riders just hours before -- the light show and performance was probably one of the best I've ever seen.
There's FANTASTIC food (San Antonio is known for their love for food), fun carnival rides for all ages, and a convention center full of unique vendors. I even went home with a high-quality handbag that a specailty shoppe in Fredericksburg sells.
Needless to say, I highly recommend making time to visit the San Antonio Rodeo -- it's in February, so bring your jacket and umbrella as the only complaint I have is that it often rains during this time of year. And expect to see the unexpected -- this ain't your regular rodeo!
