Souvenir Sunday: rodeo treats at William P. Hobby Airport

It’s Souvenir Sunday here at The day we look at some of the fun and inexpensive souvenirs you can find at the airport.

This week’s souvenirs come to us from Houston’s William P. Hobby Airport, where the Houston Rodeo store offers up plenty of cute cowboy items – all under $10.

There’s this great bull-riding toy;

Bucking bronco-themed salt & pepper shakers – which would look great by the half-dozen;

And, of course, this Rodeo Princess Tiara, which could be worn on all sorts of occasions.

Have you find a great souvenir while you were stuck at the airport? If the price tag is just about $10, “of” the city or region and, ideally, a bit offbeat, please snap a photo and send it along.  Your souvenir may be featured on a future edition of Souvenir Sunday.

Round-up at George Bush Intercontinental Airport

The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo is out of the chute and that means thousands of cowboys, cowgirls and rodeo fans from around the world are making their way to Houston – and through George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH).

To make sure everyone feels welcome, airport greeters are fanning out to welcome travelers and offer them directions, rodeo pins, cowboy hats, and other memorabilia.  Rodeo fan or not: if you’re passing through the airport, keep an eye out for characters, cowboys, and performers.  The concert line-up at the livestock and rodeo show includes the likes of Brooks &  Dunn and the Black Eyed Peas.
