Go Texan Day is the Friday before the Houston Rodeo starts. There was an outfit contest at work, so I had to participate. I don’t need an excuse to wear my cowboy boots!
This is an explanation of Go Texan Day that was provided by the local country radio station, The Bull:
“Go Texan Day happens the Friday before the Rodeo Houston Parade kicks off… and the entire population of our great city of Houston dresses like a buncha TEXANS! In 1954, at the time, the President of Rodeo Houston, Archer Romero made it official… and as Texans… we say THANK YOU!! In a nut shell… it’s intended to get everyone FIRED up for the WORLDS BIGGEST RODEO! Since then… most of the entire state has adopted the holiday… God Blessed Texas!”
I can totally get on board with this local holiday!
Here is the photo that was taken of us at work:
The guy and the girl on the far right won best dressed cowgirl and cowboy. The girl in the middle of the front row, next to me, won most creative, but that was because no one else wanted to go up against her! Her only resources were cardboard boxes and paper, but she created a hat, vest, boots and a horse!
Here is a photo of just me:
