Fans rejoice today after organizers of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo made a big announcement.
The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo has been successful since 1931 (according to Wikipedia) and now in its 92nd year, it adds a day off to the event.
I remember my first time at the event – back in the early 80’s. It was my first time in such a huge arena (it was held in the Astrodome back then) and I was struck by the monstrosity of the building.
Also, if I remember correctly, it was the first time I saw George Strait live.
For those who don’t know Houston Livestock Show and Rodeoit is the world’s largest event of its kind, attracting nearly two and a half million visitors over its nearly three-week run last year alone.
So why are the fans happy? What could be added to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo to make them better?
One word: FREE!
The organizers of the event bring a FREE Community Tag into the mix.
Why is the “free” part a big deal? Because normal admission for an adult is $20 a day, and that’s just to go on the grounds. Children under 12 – $10. For a family of 4, that’s an instant saving of at least $60!
It’s easy to see why this is a big deal.
the community day is scheduled for Wednesday March 8th and includes free entry for all until noon that day.
For the first time, the rodeo is hosting Community Day and is offering additional discounts for guests who come to NRG Park on the middle Wednesday of the rodeo. The celebration includes rides and games to buy, get one, discounted food and drink deals, and community activations. – Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo
In addition to free entry, event organizers also plan to help families save money by offering discounts on concessions and fun — including specials on food and drink and BOGO deals on rides and games.
Of course, if people want to enjoy the concerts, it costs extra. StubHub lists tickets to Kenny Chesney’s show as ranging from $29 (nosebleeds) to $582.
Other entertainers are scheduled to perform at the Houston Livestock Show and the Rodeo This year’s cast includes Machine Gun Kelly, Chainsmokers, Zac Brown Band, Brooks and Dunn, Chris Stapleton, Brad Paisley, Like Bryan and Lauren Daigle.
