A proud Houston tradition, this Friday, February 28, is Go Texan Day, a day where the Bayou City takes a step back to honor our western roots. Go Texan Day was started by the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo years and years ago to welcome the trail riders into town and to build excitement around the kick-off of Rodeo. Like any Texas tradition, Go Texan Day has gotten bigger and bigger every year.
Native Houstonians and Texans along with Texas transplants are encouraged to pull out their finest western wear including boots, belt buckles, Texas bolos, ten-gallon hats and more to celebrate the splendor of our Texas heritage. So dust off those boots and show off your Texas pride. Y’all know we’ll be doing the same.
Also, don’t be surprised when you see horses and wagons blocking the freeways and roadways this Friday as it’s part of the beauty of the day. What’s more Texan than a group of cowboys trail ridin’ through the Lone Star State? Roll down your window and say “howdy” to all those folks making their way into town. Feel free to come on over to one of our Kirby Drive locations, as we get a front row seat to all the action.
Go Texan Day is one of our favorite Texas holidays and we can’t wait to celebrate with everyone around town. Go Texan, y’all!
