Grab your boots and cowboy hats! Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo Parade is here

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo Parade takes over downtown Houston on Saturday, Feb. 23 at 10 a.m.

Every February since 1938, the nation's fourth largest city is transformed from a bustling metropolis to a down-home celebration of Western heritage. Decorative floats intermingle with thousands of men and women on horseback to fill the streets with hoof beats and marching bands.
