Houston Livestock Show
You can smell the Houston Livestock Show before you see it, but it doesn’t take long for the scent of farm to fade and the animals to take center stage. Old time locals still refer to it as Houston Fat Stock Show, and since its inception in 1932; the show has grown to become the world’s largest livestock show. Broken down to three categories, Junior, Youth and Open Show, the livestock show draws animal exhibitors from across the country. Cows, rabbits, goats, sheep, pigs and llamas are among the animals competing with their owners, but our favorite livestock show destination is maternity ward, where baby farm animals are born and kept with their mother throughout the show.
