If you haven’t been to the San Antonio Rodeo and Stock Show, you’ve still got time to get down there and have some fun! The rodeo lasts through the 21 of February (that’s this Sunday). Tickets to the Rodeo itself cost $10-$25 and include admission to the rodeo, a concert, and the grounds. You usually can’t buy a concert ticket for just $10, much less a ticket to a concert, a rodeo, and a fair. That’s a whole day of entertainment fun.
If that’s a little too much for your pocketbook, you can get into the grounds for just $7 adults and $3 for children. There’s a carnival, the livestock, and plenty of interesting booths and shops. Gates open at 8am every day, and the Family Fair starts at 10am. Find more information on the rodeo’s website: http://www.sarodeo.com/sarodeo/general/
All of that excitement is bound to get you hungry, and we all know that food at a fair is expensive. So why not head over to the Smokehouse for a chopped burger plate, just $4.79? You get the chopped beef burger (real smoked meat) and a choice of two sides. Speaking from experience, the cole slaw and potato salad are both good choices. Don’t forget to mention $5 Dining. You can spend all day at the rodeo and fair, end with a concert, and eat a delicious BBQ dinner for just $12-$15 a person. Now that’s a fun day on the cheap!
