In carrying over the Rodeo topic this week, I got the chance to check out the Rodeo Austin Star of Texas Fair & Rodeo on Wednesday and boy was I in for a treat. I instantly turned into a big kid and was on major sensory overload. There was SO much to see and SO much to do.
First of all, they have carnival rides galore. Not to mention the Big Circus Side Show—Freaks!!! The two head cat, the giant rat, the world’s smallest horse, the bearded lady—Oh My!! I couldn’t resist the merry go round.
Next I was off to the Wild West Show, Ol’ McDonalds Barn and Pig Races. Bring out the animals. They were everywhere! Pigs, Lambs, Chickens, Roosters, Cows, Sheep, horse…And what’s a rodeo without the animals? I think the chickens are my favorite.
I can’t sign off without reporting on the food. You know how I love my food. They had all the typical carnie food, but their stands seem to be much more festive than I remember from my last carnie food experience. And of course they had every kind of food on a stick—chicken, shrimp, roasted corn, corn dogs, cotton candy, candy apples. A few things that stood out to me include: Pizza on a stick, Elephants Ears, Fried Beef Tenderloin and the Kind Taters were super yummy.
You still have one more week we enjoy all the festivities. It’s definitely worth it!
