Despite the winter grip on Houston, it’s spring in our agenda and our steps as it begins…..

If you’re not a Texan you might have to ask, what begins?

Well, that would be the annual celebration of Texas Independence running from March 2nd Independence Day, through March 6th Alamo Day, to April 21st and the victory at San Jacinto.  It’s the beginning of Lent and the advent of Spring with all the many festivals to celebrate, beginning with the grand-daddy of them all the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.

City and civic leaders are bracing for, not just the thousands who are moving to Houston weekly, now they’re preparing for some 350,000 visitors expected daily over the next 3 weeks.

As you put away the overcoats, don’t forget to pull out the welcome mats.
