    Love everything at the HLSR. In the future, we won't go on the "Value Day"...extremely crowded.

    Go during the day if you want to avoid lines. Go at night if you want t avoid the heat. The concerts are always a hit! Buy tickets early. Get the half off ticket books early. $50 for great deals!

    Everything is good. Don't waste the effort trying to park close. Exit Main St., park in a cash lot, and catch a bicycle cab to the stadium.

    My first live Rodeo. It's cool. Prices for food and beverages are high, for my opinion.

    The best rodeo in the country. Make a day of it. See the livestock, eat the fried food, ride the rides, watch the rodeo, and don't forget to stay for the concert.

    Don't even try to go if you are handicapped (crutches/wheelchair). They wouldn't let us on the elevators because they are "VIP only" & we had to walk all the way around the stadium. Don't bother.
