Not From Texas

Let’s rodeo, Houston

They came, they rode, they paraded. We saw.

It’s that time of year again: Time for the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, which means that it’s time to kick off the rodeo season with a big parade.

Tons and tons and tons of horses, tons of cute kids on the sidewalks, more cute kids on horses. And lots of City of Houston street sweepers to clean up the mess the four-legged parade participants left behind. In fact, the biggest cheer my part of the crowd gave all morning was to the white-T-shirt clad Texas A&M Corps of Cadets members who marched behind the Corps’ mounted cavalry carrying shovels, pushbrooms and a couple of wheelbarrows to clean up what the unit’s horses deposited on Travis Street.

Here’s a slideshow from my flickr account.
