It’s something that’s always fun and a little retro. Something that’s part of the buzz and everybody seems to want to be a part of it. Something that’s old school… actually something that’s Old School Cool… like the legendary Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo. Old School Cool will be a way of life for the more than one million guests that attend the 2019 Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo, January 18 through February 9. Nothing is more Old School Cool than the Will Rogers Coliseum which will host its 76th year of Stock Show rodeo performances. The experience will be nostalgic for those who have decades of recollections of cowboys, cowgirls, Roy and Dale and many other great memories. Between horse shows, rodeo shopping, petting zoo, awesome food, livestock shows and the carnival midway, there’s plenty more Stock Show fun. But, for now, there’s some great stuff to read about in this issue of Whoa! . Check out the story on Caitlynn Teel, who has won more than $30,000 in Stock Show scholarship funds to support her goal of becoming a veterinarian. There’s also an update on the renovation of the Cattle 1 and Poultry Barns and, of course, the latest on construction of Dickies Arena. Dispersed throughout are stories and information that add to the Stock Show’s legendary appeal. After you’ve gotten a peek at the annual event that’s made Fort Worth cool for the last 123 years, visit the Stock Show’s website to order your tickets and be ready to go Old School Cool at the legendary Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo.
