Giddy-up! It’s that time of year folks, time for the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo! As the official site says, “This Thing Is Legendary®”. Established in 1896, the Stock Show and Rodeo is a time-honored tradition for these parts. The classic Fort Worth event started officially this past weekend (Friday, January 15th) and will go through Saturday, February 6th. I know my husband Jeff has been taking his girls annually to the Fort Worth Stock Show since they were old enough to step over and around the piles if you know what I mean. It’s a great way for youngsters to get up close and personal with livestock and make that connection. His youngest, Miranda said her fondest memories were the goats “because they would eat anything we tried to feed them” and the rabbits, which encouraged her to own her own rabbit some time later.

Want to visit more than once? I don’t blame you! Remember, the secret here is the Souvenir Pin – each pin is good for admission to the Grounds, Livestock, Horse Shows and more for the entire 23 day show. Plus, it’s a cool collector’s item for each year.
