Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo officials announced today that country music star Clay Walker will serve as the 2011 Downtown Rodeo Parade Grand Marshal Saturday, Feb. 26, 2011.
Walker will open RodeoHouston on March 1, 2011, making his 17th appearance at the Show.

One lucky RodeoHouston fan will win a unique opportunity for a ride with three friends in the Downtown Rodeo Parade and opening night in the Rodeo Grand Entry, plus four tickets to the March 1 performance. Entries will be accepted at www.facebook.com/rodeohouston under the 2011 Lineup tab.

Tickets are still available for all 2011 RodeoHouston performers, including Jason Aldean, KISS, Zac Brown Band, Janet Jackson, Lady Antebellum, Kid Rock, Sugarland and more. Visit www.rodeohouston.com to see the full lineup and to buy tickets.

The Downtown Rodeo Parade begins at 10 a.m., Feb. 26, in downtown Houston. It is a Western celebration, with decorative floats intermingling with thousands of men and women on horseback to join the skyscrapers and freeways. The streets fill with hoof beats and marching bands, and are lined with Houstonians and out-of-town spectators to help kick off the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.

The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo is a Section 501(c)(3) charity that benefits youth, supports education, and facilitates better agricultural practices through exhibitions and presentation. Since its beginning in 1932, the Show has committed more than $265 million to the youth of Texas. The 2011 Show runs March 1-20. For more information, visit www.rodeohouston.com.
