Houston Rodeo is an annual (somekind of) festival where there are competition of cowboy and cowgirl, competition of livestock plus some show of famous singer/band. It is usually held on the last week of February until the first week of March. The cowboy (and girl) show started everyday on 7pm until 10pm. So if you attend the rodeo earlier, you got to see the livestock where cow and bull are shown around. The winner of the livestock usually got their animal sold for hundreds of thousand dollar. The competition happened daily during the 2 weeks festival. Each day winner will compete with the next day winner and so on, until the final day of the rodeo there will be the final.
After the rodeo (cowboy/girl) show finished at 10pm, then the stadium is converted into a moving stage for famous singer. The singer doing the show in Houston rodeo is different everyday and they are always a famous music star. I actually got the chance to see Black Eyed Peas, Kenney Chesney and Taylor Swift in different years of Rodeo I attended.
During the Rodeo show, people attending it usually come with western attire such as cowboy boot, hat, leather jacket, even with the rope hanging on their belt. Quite interesting, thus I love to attend it every year. I actually attend few times in the same year.
