Get ready to unleash your inner cowboy at the Downtown Rodeo Parade. This year's grand marshal is Texas A&M University's head football coach Kevin Sumlin who'll lead the procession along with the Fightin' Texas Aggie Band. Hundreds of trail riders, dozens of marching bands and decorated floats, along with local dignitaries – and a pooper scooper or two – make their way through the downtown streets past thousands of viewers. The parade route has changed, so check the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo website for details. As always, it's smart to take METRO (public parking will be scarce and expensive).
