Cook-off promises best rodeo yet

First Place Tailride the crew on horseback and the ones aboard presented
a fine vista for judges last Saturday.

CROSBY – The rodeo here begins with the cook-off, and the cook-off contains the rodeo parade. Last weekend, both occurred, and this week it is time for the show – cowboy sports and concerts.

Bag of Donuts led the concerts this year, and they were as outlandish as during the regular rodeo last season. Fans packed the parking lots.

This year Coy Hearn headed up the parade that went the traditional route north on FM 2100 and went under the Overpass at Kernohan Street.

Eddy Glover presided over 90 teams in the cook-off, a record. This year, party and great food were a most successful combination. Of course, Sony Armstrong is president and Major Rick Larkin is Chairman of the Crosby Fair & Rodeo.

The winning cooking team photos and parade winning showmanship and trailrides follow on page 7.

Mutton Bustin’ will be featured each night of Rodeo. Adam Hood and Parker McCollum sing Thursday. Shane Smith & The Saints lead Friday and William Clark Green closes. The Unleased Live Reunion plays Saturday.
