The last weekend for the annual San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo was this past week, and they truly ended it with a kick. The carnival grounds were packed with people young and old wanting to celebrate the final weekend of the rodeo for the year in proper Antonian fashion.

Rides were some of the most popular attractions. The Ferris Wheel ride had a line that seemed to be almost as long the southern border, but the workers were attentive with getting riders on and off for an enjoyable experience. Once on the ride, you could even see all the lights from the carnival, truly a beautiful look at the South Texas skyline.

Other rides were not the slow, methodical pace of the Ferris Wheel; rather, some were fast-paced and exciting. The Himalaya might not have looked exciting, but once aboard it is a quick ride that certainly does not disappoint. You could see the joy on everyone’s face as they were riding the exciting rides.

The workers of the games and booths drew visitors towards them. Big personalities and the great salesmen made you want to spend your money on games you cannot win. Either way, they truly supplied children with fun, even if many walked away short of what they brought to the booth.

If you did not have the chance to go to the rodeo carnival this year, I highly recommend you spend the money and do it next year. You will not regret it!
