Hello,

Welcome to the BABC - Houston newsletter of upcoming events, articles, jobs and more from our membership.


If you are new to Houston, you are about to experience a local phenomenon called the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. Festivities kickoff Thursday night with the annual Rodeo BBQ Cookoff. All the trail riders (yes, literally riding down the freeway access roads on horseback) will converge on Memorial Park on Friday where they will camp overnight. Plan your travel day accordingly! It's a grand sight, but it can snarl traffic. Patience is a virtue. 


Friday is also Go Texan Day and western wear is de rigueur. Saturday is the Rodeo Parade downtown at 10 am which kicks off 3 weeks of concerts, rodeoing and all manner of goings on. This event literally takes over the town. But it's all for a good cause. Since its beginning in 2932, the Houston Livestock Show and rodeo has committed more than 4350 million to scholarships, research endowments, calf scramble participants (you just have to look that one up), junior show exhibitors, School Art participants, and other educational youth programs.


So saddle up and enjoy the ride, my friends. 

Becci Himes, Executive Directo
