    FWSY Poultry Show is Saturday, January 23 & Sunday, January 24 at 9:00am both days. Are you going? We are -- my hubby, youngest, and I, that is. After I get off from working at the hospital Friday night, we are heading over to Grapevine to spend the night. Then we'll be up and at 'em at the show the next morning. I am so EXCITED!

    I've never been. If you have, please share a story here. What other fun things did you do while you were there?

    If you are going this year, what fun plans do you have?

    I'm hoping we get to go. No way I'd take both kids alone (yes I am a paranoid nut) but B is off on Sunday so that's a distinct possibility!!

    Edit... okay $6 for parking... $24 for the four of us to get in... 2 adults 2 kids
    Any guesstimates on money to bring for some lunch and a few rides/games...
    I haven't a clue what things cost, but I bet a LOT... any advice appreciated. [​IMG]

    Ooo...I have no idea what food costs...I've never been before myself. It's probably not Six Flags prices, but I bet it's not cheap, either. Since the show starts at 9:00am both days, we will eat breakfast beforehand, go to the show, and then probably grab lunch at the stock yards. I'm cravin' a nacho just thinking about it...LOL.

    We go every year and show mostly Modern Game bantams and a few Old English.
    The only food I enjoy there is anything on a stick, my wife likes the Margaritas.

    This was the Premier show in Texas for a long time but has slipped quite a bit in numbers, but it is still a great show.
    There are some breeders that show only at this show and there are some old timers that don't show anymore but still wouldn't miss it.

    I live about 45 minutes south of FT. Worth. I've never been before. So what goes on? Just shows? Would it be possible to buy a few chicks there?

    Quote:It is a Stock show, lots of Livestock shows and exhibits. It cost to park and to enter but there is an awful lot to see, it takes all day. There are no chicks or any other livestock for sale

    I'll be there on Sunday, the 24th. We are showing our dairy goats this weekend, so next weekend I'll go back and just enjoy all the shows. I'll spend some time at the poultry show and also at the Mini-Donkey show.

    There are lots of vendors and commercial exhibits. I know my husband will spend at least an hour prowling through them.

    I can't wait for the giant cinnamon rolls and the boudain sausage. [​IMG] Oh, and the funnel cakes! Nom!
