MERCEDES - Even though these stands might be vacant now, sponsors and staff are already working hard to prepare for the 2012 RGV Livestock Show.
This large lot of land is quite this time of year, mostly because the planning for the event is still done inside an office. But soon, more infrastructure repairs and expansion projects will start, so that the facility will be top notch for the 2012 Show.
"We are working on booking our entertainment for next year. What we call our free entertainment so once you come through the gate and pay your ten dollars to get in the gate you have access to all this entertainment," said Sam Magee, Office Manager - RGV Livestock Show.
But even with all the fun, a large part of the event is dedicated to the kids.
"I can't emphasize enough that the purpose of our show is for the youth of our Valley. So any help that we can get through sponsorships, that is just that much more we can help our kids of the Valley," said Magee.
So even though next year's event is nine months away, the dedicated staff is working hard to turn this vacant parking lot into a packed house.
"We want to invite everybody out next year to have another tremendous show and we are always trying to make it bigger and better," said Magee.
