It’s Rodeo time again in Houston! We look forward all year to the month of March when we can listen to some of our favorite musicians, crack up at the calf scramble, watch the bull-riding, act like crazy kids at the carnival, and eat till our belts bust! As much as we love the Rodeo, we know that it can get expensive and be difficult to navigate. Your friends at Liberty have put together some tips and tricks for how to get through the Rodeo with less hassle and more money in your pocket.
Most people have no idea that Wednesdays are actually the cheapest days to attend the Livestock Show and Rodeo! Admission to the grounds is $5 for Adults and free for Seniors and kids 12 and under! The Wednesday night concerts are also the cheapest!
People often make the mistake of buying both a concert ticket and paying for admissions to the grounds. When you buy your concert ticket, it includes access to all of the Livestock show grounds and carnival!
Through February 28, you can buy carnival tickets at half price on the Rodeo Houston website! https://secure.rodeohouston.com/carnivaltickets/Order.aspx Get your Carnival tickets in advance to save money and beat those lines!
Getting to the Rodeo
Everyone knows that parking at the Rodeo can be a real headache. It can be either a long walk and tram ride, or it can be pretty pricey. Many Houstonians are learning that taking the METRORail is a fun way to get to the Rodeo. It drops you off at the front door of the NRG Center and costs $1.25 each way. We at Liberty love this option since it protects your vehicle from the concerns a driver has about parking in large lots that are often unsupervised.
Whether you like the food, the rides, the excitement, or the tradition, we hope that all of you enjoy this exciting time of year in Houston!
Liberty Auto Sales has been a long time supporter of the chamber music quintet WindSync who performed an enchanting concert at Zilkha Hall in the Hobby Center over Valentine’s weekend. They collaborated with HSPVA’s dancers to create a Shakespeare-inspired performance art experience that was an inspiring way to celebrate Valentine’s. I’m very proud of Liberty’s support of WindSync in that we’ve provided a means for the group to travel all over the country as well as internationally and to bring classical music into schools. WindSync also graces the cover of Art + Culture magazine this month! For up to date performance information, check www.windsync.org.
I’ve just learned that beyond supporting the arts, Liberty has inspired the arts! My niece Lauren wrote a poem about Liberty for a school assignment on metaphors. I was so touched by her words and the emotions she expressed in the poem that I feel that I have to share it. Having grown up on the car lot, it thrills me to see a new generation forming memories in our family business. The imagery she uses totally hit home to me! I love that she captured our commitment to a bilingual workplace and that she knows that we view our customers as friends. And yes, there is usually a lot of barbeque. I know you all will enjoy her work as much as I do!

Is a big happy place.
The motors in cars are

The Barbeque for lunch is like
the smell of a taunting Heath bar.

Here is a day on the beach.
Wearing boots is

The other lot is taking a stroll down the street.
Speaking to customers is speaking to friends and running around the lot is running in gym, except with my cousins.
