Highland Lakes Rodeos
Here in Texas, you can't say you've had a good summer unless you attend at least one — well, maybe two or three — rodeos. Competitors with talents ranging from bull doggin’ to barrel racing fill the small-town arenas in spring and summer.
These family-friendly events offer rugged rodeo action, calf scrambles, mutton bustin’ for the kids, and, of course, some extra-tough fellas who think it's fun to bother a bull. There will be some clowning around, too. A Highland Lakes rodeo isn’t complete without doing the two-step at the dance afterward.
It might get a little dusty, but the riders, wranglers, animal athletes, and the band can certainly wow a crowd.
