My boys ran in the Rodeo Rumble last year and then we stuck around to explore Rodeo Austin. The kids visited livestock, spent some time in the Kidstown petting zoo, watched pig races, and rode around the pedal tractor maze. All free! As a heads up, though, the carnival opens at 11 a.m. on March 14 and those rides are not free.
Another opportunity to visit Rodeo Austin for free is through the School Tours Program. You may also be interested in the free Cowboy Breakfast at the Long Center that will kick off Rodeo Austin on March 6, 2015 at 6 a.m.
