The 2012 Tom Thumb Texas Stampede opens its gates this weekend sporting world-class rodeo and headlining concerts at the Allen Event Center.
 Tradition, pride and culture will be on display beginning at 10 a.m. Friday with the Western Heritage Festival, which runs until 10 p.m. both days of the celebration. The festival will feature a petting zoo, pony rides, stick horse races and the always-popular mutton-bustin' competition. A western marketplace will also be included.
Rodeo chutes open at 7:30 p.m. Friday when nearly 400 of the top cowboys and cowgirls in the world representing the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association and the Women's Professional Rodeo Association cinch up for what promises to be a wild ride. Dallas-based Carr Pro Rodeo is contracted to provide the bulk of the production and bucking stock.
