By  | 

TOMBALL, TX – The 67th annual Sam Houston Trail Ride arrives in Tomball on Tuesday, February 22nd for two hours of old style western fun at the historic downtown 1907 Railroad Depot Museum on South Elm Street.

This annual event is when the whole community turns out to say howdy and welcome the trail riders as they meander to the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo later in the week.

There’ll 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 Skeeters Dogs & Desserts, 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.

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, Skeeters Dogs & Desserts, K-Star 99.7 FM and Tony Swonke Entertainment.
