Photo by Lauren Wilson Once a^ain, Houston saddles up ror Rodeo Houston One of the oldest traditions in Texas is the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo and this year, the event lassoed large audiences with its diverse schedule. The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, often called Rodeo Houston, is a month long celebration of Texas culture. The event is jam packed with activities for the whole family and it all takes place in the Reliant Stadium and Reliant Hall. The one feature of the Rodeo that everyone awaits to hear about is the Rodeos entertainment line-up. Each Rodeo concludes with an exciting concert by some of the countrys leading musical acts. This years entertainment line-up offered more alternatives to the diverse city of Houston. For instance, the Rodeo would not be a Rodeo without country favorites like Clay Walker and Alan Jackson. Providing a little soul to the event was diva Diana Ross and for the rock and rollers out there, Def Leppard was on hand to rock the Dome. And after a long day at the Rodeo, Texans could relax and enjoy the mellow sounds of Barry Manilow. While the musical acts are entertaining, as any Texans will tell you, the real event is the Rodeo itself. Each night, rough and tough cowboys and girls compete in Bareback Bronc Riding, Saddle Bronc Riding, Bull Riding, Steer Wrestling, Calf P76| Community Roping, Team Roping and Barrel Racing. Each night, a lucky cowboy or girl also wins airline tickets courtesy of Continental Airlines in the High Flyin' Hard Luck Awards for any disappointments or injuries that received during the Rodeo. The youth of Texas also get a chance to compete in the rodeo by scrambling after calves in the calf scramble. They also receive an opportunity to show off the animals they are raising in the livestock show. The Houston Livestock show and Rodeo is also the home of the World Champion BBQ contest where hundreds of chefs compete to see who makes the best dish in brisket, chicken or ribs. UH professor and media production engineer Mike Nagy says, "The thing I like about going to the Rodeo is being part of the biggest indoor barbeque on the planet. Its a lot of people and its a lot of fun!' What makes the Rodeo enjoyable for all Houstonians is the fact that they have something for everyone. Special events are held celebrating various cultures and exhibits fill the Reliant Hall with crafts, quilt shows and art exhibits. Despite Houstonians displeasure with taking the bus to the stadium because of construction, Rodeo Houston 2001 proved once again to be a popular attraction for Houstonians and for Texans. One of the most exciting moments in the Rodeo is the Wagon Races. Here three wagons make a final dash around the corner in their their battle for victory. Photo by Will Corclay Rodeo Houston 0
