Everyone, giddy-up! Rodeo season (it is a season, right?) is upon us. This weekend kicks everything off with the some finger-licking good food at the World's Championship Bar-B-Que Contest, informally known as cook-off. Before you head out, make sure you check out our guide to tackling the rodeo; coming up with a game plan ahead of time will make the whole experience much less overwhelming! And don't forget to check out the best places to purchase rodeo gear for your kids so they can show up in style.
On a more serious note, it would be remiss not to acknowledge the most recent school shooting. Our hearts go out to the families who are suffering right now. The current culture of fear is both sickening and heartbreaking, and we know firsthand how difficult it is to know the right course of action when addressing this. There are ways both parents and children alike can feel empowered in the wake of this event, however, and we hope these tips provides some small measure of hope and confidence moving forward.
As you plan out your upcoming week and weekend, keep in mind that our event calendar always features events and activities in Houston and the surrounding cities. We also highlight the best events happening throughout the month in our February GoList, and our Top 100 Things to Do With Houston Kids list is the perfect place to find something unique to do with the family. We know it can be hard to stay on top of everything that's happening, so we also have a FREE weekly newsletter that will deliver the best of the best straight to your inbox.
