When the first Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo Parade was held in 1938, someone suggested it have the "pomp and ceremony of a Roman holiday." While we're not likely to see mobile Caligula-like orgies wafting through the downtown streets, there will be plenty of Western-themed floats, high school bands, horseback riders, clowns and politicians trolling for votes. 10 a.m. Downtown Houston.
