It’s that time of year again. The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo is back in town. This year it will be from Feb 25 to March 17. First up, let’s talk about that lineup. It looks interesting this year. As expected, most of the artists are country musicians, although Cardi B was a nice surprise. Even though her tickets are a bit expensive, it is not as excessive as George Strait. It is insane that his tickets go up to 3,500 dollars. That will most likely be the most crowded day at the rodeo, considering it is also the last day. Other artists there are Zedd, Prince Royce, Camila Cabello, Cody Johnson, Brad Paisley, Luke Bryan, Panic! At the Disco and more. Ticket prices vary based on the popularity of the artist.

Concerts are not the only part of the rodeo that are exciting. There are also carnival games for prizes.  Not only that, but there are the bull riding events, as well as rides and food. Hello, deep-fried Oreos. Those are usually very popular, but the lines are the worst. Not only that but also, the cell reception with that many people in one area is always terrible. The tip of the day is do not get lost.

Going back to the line up, it is exciting to see the artists that are coming. Even though the tickets are super expensive, it goes towards promoting agriculture. It also provides thousands of jobs for people. Even though the main purpose is plain entertainment, it is also for a greater cause which has a huge economic impact at the end. It raises so much money which has many uses. It brings people together for enjoyment but also benefits young people and the income of those living in Texas every year.
