Show your western pride for Go Texan Day

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Show off your Lone Star pride for Go Texan Day.

Go Texan Day has been a tradition since the 1950s and is celebrated across Houston each year the Friday before the rodeo parade.

People roundup their boots, bolo ties and big hats to wear to work and school. For some parents, it's the perfect day to get the kiddos all dolled up as a cowboy or cowgirl. It makes for some adorable photos.

So if you dusted off your cowboy boots and wrangled up some tight blue jeans, snap a photo and share it with ABC13. Email or tag Eyewitness News on social media using #abc13eyewitness.
