Sam Houston Trail Riders Return to Tomball Feb. 25

By  | 

TOMBALL, TX – The 66th annual Sam Houston Trail Ride arrives in Tomball on Tuesday, February 25th for two hours of old style western fun at the historic downtown 1907 Railroad Depot Museum.

The whole community turns out to say howdy to the trail riders at the annual event as they meander their way to the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo later in the week.

There will be music and old style western fun as the riders stop in Tomball for some grub and to visit the privy. Event visitors can even slap on the feed bag with free vittles courtesy of H-E-B, Whataburger, and Nonnie’s Café & Creamery, too.

Join the Tomball Community Center line dancers for some mid-day “boot scootin’” and then hang out with K-Star 99.7 FM on-air personalities Brave Dave and Lisa Christi. There will be fun freebies for the kids, while supplies last, too.




Tomball’s rootin’ tootin’ cowboy mascot, Dusty Trails, will make an appearance along with his identical twin railroad engineer cousin Rusty Rails! The City’s most popular downtown attraction, the Depot railroad museum, will be open with its two detailed model railways, memorabilia, art, and artifacts on display, too.

The free fun starts around high-noon, so put on the dancin’ boots, jeans and Stetson, grab the kids, and come on down. Admission and parking are free. The Depot is at 201 South Elm Street along the railroad tracks in downtown Tomball.

The Sam Houston Trail Riders Reception in Tomball is sponsored by the City of Tomball, H-E-B, Whataburger, Nonnie’s Café & Creamery, K-Star 99.7 FM, and Tony Swonke Entertainment.

Tomball is just 28-miles northwest of downtown Houston on FM 2920 at Highway 249.  Call 281-351-5484 or visit for information.
