The two big events bring thousands of people across the community together. Hotels and restaurants are already booking up, with about 75,000 fans expected to travel to the Houston area for the Final Four.

The announcement comes a little over a week since this year's rodeo season came to an end.

Last Sunday, the last day of the rodeo, a bull rider was knocked unconscious during the championship.

There were concerns over the athlete who competed in the event, but he was checked out and walking shortly after.

JB Mauney was kept out of any further participation after the scare on Sunday but had enough points to place fourth.

Records were also broken this year after a Lamar CISD student sold a painting for $275,000 at the rodeo art auction, beating the $265,000 record she set in 2022.

She was named Reserve Grand Champion last year and Grand Champion of this year's art contest.

Way to go, Mia! The 18-year-old broke her own record, which she set during last year's contest. A Clear Creek ISD junior was named Reserve Grand Champion.

So get ready, Houston, because next year's rodeo will be here before you know it.
