The Parade, The Cook-Off: Can The Rodeo Be Far Behind?

You want photos of the wholesomeness of the rodeo parade, featuring giant cans of food, and the debauchery of the rodeo BBQ Cookoff, featuring giant cans all but bursting out of western shirts?

You know you do. (WARNING: BBQ pictures might not feature the aforementioned giant cans. You'll just have to settle for the parade picture above.

Check them out, then get ready for the big opening Tuesday. As always, we'll be providing extensive coverage of everything that makes the rodeo so near and dear to Houston, from the cheese of some of the performers to the grease of most of the Midway.

If you see something at the rodeo that you think we should know about, give us a shout, via e-mail or comments.

We're here to serve. And eat lots of fried food and sausage-on-a-stick.
