This 1964 home movie first captures the Sam Houston Trail Ride, an all-horse parade that travels the trail roads from Montgomery into Houston to kick off the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo is the largest livestock exhibition and rodeo in the world, now averaging over two million attendees annually. Later, the Rairigh family journeys to New York City for the 1964 World’s Fair, where they see DuPont’s “Wonderful World of Chemistry.” The film concludes with the Rairighs back home in Beaumont to celebrate Christmas.
