Make Stock Show Parking Easy – Catch the Rodeo Redline!!!

Weekend Stock Show parking can be a breeze- just catch the Rodeo Redline bus. For $5 you can park at Billy Bob’s Texas parking lot and then ride comfortably to the front entrance of the Stock Show grounds. Runs from 8:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Sat. and 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Sun.

Are You Smarter Than A Bullfighter?!?!        

One of the fun things to do at the 2017 Stock Show is “Are You Smarter Than a Bullfighter” -a trivia contest that pits you against the rodeo’s bullfighters. So download the Stock Show’s app (available on iTunes and Google Play) and be ready to play when you attend a Stock Show rodeo performance. Winners will be entered in a drawing for a prize from Wrangler®. 

FWSSR_PettingZoo-105.jpgSeeing, Touching, Learning

Of the 6.5 million residents in the Metroplex a small percentage have ever been around horses, cows, goats, or sheep. The Children’s Barnyard and the Bank of Texas Petting Zoo lets visitors get up close and personal with these critters. Planet Agriculture and the Thank a Farmer® Magic Show, both presented by Texas Farm Bureau Insurance, give a true picture of what farming is really about and how food gets to our table.
