CROSBY If the unprecedented large crowd at the Cook-Off Party Friday night is to be any indication, the 62nd Crosby Fair & Rodeo is to be the most successful presentation yet.
The real indication of the success of the Crosby Fair & Rodeo Board (that has work diligently preparing new facilities and buildings and ever adding new charities) is to be the Auction that will occur Wednesday night, after press time in which the largest surrounding area percentage goes directly to the students that raise the stock.
The purpose of the Crosby Fair & Rodeo is to raise funds for scholarships; however, and community attendance of the P.R.C.A. Rodeo and Concerts that follow in the show are utmost in importance.
Thursday night following the rodeo a local star making his way around the circuit is Cody Kouba playing before the resoundingly successful Kevin Fowler. Another charity to benefit from Thursday is the Shriners Burn Facility.
Friday night Johnny Cooper leads off for Jack Ingram after the cowboy sport of rodeo.
Saturday night, Tough Enough to Wear Pink Night, (benefitting breast cancer research) will feature Aaron Watson leading for Jason Boland, two rising stars for the college crowd. Wear pink Saturday!
A completely new livestock pavilion has been erected with state of the art lights and facilities and a new concession stand.
This year, the directors are recovering from a series of copper theft assaults on the fairgrounds and hopes are to surmount the expense with a successful gate.
At any rate, the 62nd Crosby Fair & Rodeo has due to the efforts of the community and directors begun to gain Crosby respect and notoriety throughout the greater Houston Area.
Those that enjoy the cowboy sport, music and/or helping see that area youth continue into higher education are welcome to enjoy the show. Season passes are $35.
Visit crosbyfairandrodeo.net for more information. Kids 6-12 are $5 admission, under free.
