There’s just something about competitive eating. Although it’s quite
disgusting to watch, it’s hard not to enjoy campy festivals of gluttony. Make a visit to one of these competitive eating contests, and you’ll get to watch gurgitators take on the likes of legendary hot dogs, tongue testing jalapenos, and even pig’s feet. We dare you to count the calories.
Whether you’re a country bumpkin or a city slicker, it’s hard not to love a
rodeo. With great food, exciting events, and plenty of entertainment, you’re sure to enjoy yourself wherever you go. Check out one of these rodeos during your travels for an old fashioned good time.
The San Antonio Rodeo often plays second fiddle to Houston’s, but it’s not to be discounted. This event has grown to award $64 million to students. Most recently, the rodeo was expanded to include more retail access and accommodate its growing attendance, which reached 1.1 million in 2005.
