Cowboy boots, big belt buckles, horses, wagons, trail riders, smoky barbecue, livestock, carnival rides, turkey legs, headliner entertainment, calf roping, mutton bustin’, bull riding, it’s all a part of our favorite time of year here in Houston. It’s Rodeo time!
The rodeo kicks off with Go Texan Day which ushers in the trail riders as they make their way to NRG Park. A tradition since 1954, Houstonians pull out their favorite western wear, cow bells and your biggest Yeehaw! It’s historically celebrated on the Friday before the Houston livestock show and rodeo begins and Houstonians show up by hosting chili cook-offs, barbecues and watching the trail riders as they make their way down North Post Oak to converge on Memorial Park.
Boxer Property is no different, we’re headquartered on North Post Oak Rd near Memorial Drive, where we walk into our office building clad in our favorite jeans and boots. On this day, at our properties across Houston, you’ll find employees have a big Texas smile on and are ready for a little southern hospitality. Howdy!
How Boxer Celebrates Go Texan Day
We celebrate by hosting a massive chili cook-off where our employees bring in some prize winning pots of chili, we have judges, country music and kick up our boots then around 2pm we make our way outside to wave and welcome the trail riders into town. It’s a sight to see with the teams of horses and covered wagons riding down a usually car-busy street.
