HOUSTON – Between the tickets, parking and food, a trip to Rodeo Houston can be expensive.
But if you're looking for the best ways to save, Channel 2 places the best person on the job to find the deals. Consumer Expert Amy Davis did some research to help you with a rodeo on a budget.
It's no wrong day to visit the rodeo, but to get the most savings, people will want to come on a Wednesday, Davis said. This year, the rodeo calls them "Family Wednesdays".
That means older people over the age of 60 and children 1
Once inside the intersection, there is $ 2 carnival ride and $ 2 foods at each concession stand from at. 11 to 16.00.
There are three Wednesdays during the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, so redogo's will plan their trip with that in mind.
"Wednesdays are the day to watch," said Joel Cowley, with the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. "Especially the two non-springboard Wednesdays if parents can get some time because the crowds won't be as big as Wednesdays in the spring."
People can also save on parking by leaving the car in a parking lot and taking the METRO light rail to NRG.
But no parking garage will do. Davis found the cheapest option in Houston.
There is the parking garage at 2811 Travis St .. It has a $ 5 flat rate on weekends and weekdays after. You have direct access to the METRO rail McGowen stop and you can take it to NRG for $ 1.25 each way.
For a family of four, it can cost you $ 15, which is $ 5 to $ 10 cheaper than just parking at NRG and $ 9 cheaper than parking at an express park and tour location.
As far as showing goes, while many of the headliners sold the same day, tickets went on sale, there are still tickets available for 12 concerts, including names like Camilla Cabello, Kings of Leon and Luke Bryan.
"We still have Luke Bryan tickets available," Cowley said. "They start at $ 20 and it's really a value because $ 15 gives you access to the rationale of an adult. For just $ 5 more, you can access all the great things that go on the ground and access the stadium for an amazing rodeo and star entertainer. "
A few weeks ago, Davis found tickets for some rodeo concerts that started at just $ 8 on Groupon. There are tickets for a variety of concerts, including Prince Royce, Kacey Musgraves, Brooks and Dunn and even some resale of Cardi B tickets from $ 137.
When you go to Rodeo Houston, you will also dress the part, but you will not spend a fortune on an outfit you just want to wear once.
Davis spoke to a personal fashion stylist about how to shop with your own closet. Even if you do not consider yourself land, you can probably pull together a rodeo outfit without buying anything new.
"Jeans, jeans, jeans," said Charlene Lawson of Style Chemistry Consulting. "They are a Western pin. Pull out your perfect pair of comfortable and comfortable boots to make your boots look good. It's No. 1. No. 2 is a western button-up shirt. It can be white or denim. You can even try something like a denim jacket. Very western, very elegant, and most have one in the closet. "
If you need to add something to your jeans, you can find lots of awesome authentic western wear at local resale stores.
A new U resale at Spring Cypress in Tomball outside FM 249 gets a lot of rodeo wear from the Rodeo Houston Committee members. Owner Cheryl Copperwheat can also help you put the whole outfit together.
Designer Diva Resale at Westheimer near Beltway also carries high-end brands such as Double D and Scully for cheaper brands.
