Plenty of folks are expected to fill the AT&T Center grounds over the next two plus weeks.

“San Antonio always does a really good job of putting this event on. It is cool to come to this town and do some sightseeing,” Alexis Stephas, a rodeo competitor said. “So it is good to be here.”

Sears also continued his tradition of tasting the new foods at the rodeo. He was joined by Miss Rodeo America.

From pork tenderloin steak, fried bologna sandwich and tres leches cake for dessert the pair dined their way across the grounds and gave the food two thumbs up.
