Transcript appenin V/FFERENT EVENTS ACCOMMOVATE FUN LOVERS Houston was always filled with fun activities for people of all types. Whether it was those obsessed with mediaeval times or those wanting to hear music, there was something for everybody. Patrons always found entertainment in the festivals and events. "My favorite festival is Westheimer Street Festival, in exile. I can buy jewelry, eat, listen to music from local bands and sweat," said senior psychology major Ronnie Beck. Westheimer Street Festival was one festival that was surrounded by controversy. The locals living around the Montrose and Westheimer intersection complained to the city about traffic and Wes Fest was later moved to Allen Parkway, only to return in the summer of 2003. The move only made it harder for out-of-towners to maneuver around Houston, since Allen Parkway was a main fairway to different locations in Houston, including jobs. "I have to go all the way around to 59 to get to work on Kirby if I forget that Allen Parkway is closed. It's such a pain that the people on Westheimer can't deal with traffic for two weekends out of the year," said senior psychology major Marie Dugan. Other festivals within the city included the July 4th BP Power of Freedom, The Marley Festival, The BP Childrens Festival, Houston Women's Festival and many musical, arts and cultural festivals. On t he ot her hand, some festivals were held outside city limits. "My friends and I hate driving so far, but hey, the Renaissance Festival is awesome. Especially those women in chainmail! Anything is possible at Ren Fest!" said Beck. Ren Fest brought patrons north of Magnolia to the Hempstead area from all over the state. The six weekend fall festival gave patrons a chance to eat king sized turkey legs, drink oversized steins of beer and enjoy 1 he rides and entertainment. Another event Houston was always known lor was February 's Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. Once again patrons and participants would come from all over to participate. Many of the scheduled shows would he sold out within minutes of Ticket master's window opening. Rockers from ZZ Top and Bon Jovi, to count ry stars like Tim Mcgraw and George Strait graced the stage of the show. -Michelle Lehmann Iexas Renassaince Festival patrons gather for a group picture to s ow off thier home-made elaborate costumes they wear specifically or the festival. Unconfirmed rumors that Disney bought out the iands and rights to the festival have infuriated Ren Fest lovers. -Lorrie Novasad ld=£iiimi*-'MWJ
