After spending much of last year tending to their fields and livestock through the use of agricultural equipment, some producers may be looking for an entertainment-filled break.
Some may find that opportunity in the Houston Rodeo & Livestock Show, which runs from March 2 to March 21. Included in the shows program of roping and riding, a number of entertainment acts will be featured.
Those would include groups like the Black Eyed Peas, Rascall Flats and the Jonas Brothers, along with solo performers like Tim McGraw, Kenny Chesney and Brad Paisley. Furthermore, Brooks and Dunn will make an appearance as a part of the final rodeo tour of their career.
The show, which has run since 1932, is done for the sake of charity. Since it started it has raised more than $250 million, which has been donated to efforts such as scholarships, endowments and youth programs.
Some of the scholarships have been awarded to groups like 4H, FFA and Area Go Texan. The first scholarship given through the show was presented in 1957.
