The Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo is more than just steers and piglets. According to a story in today's Fort Worth Star-Telegram, the annual event brought in more than $49 million last year alone, and generated nearly a million dollars in sales tax revenue. To that end, this year saw the addition of more retail space in the Brown-Lupton Exhibits Hall. With more than 200 vendors offering wares at other spots around the grounds, that's a whole lot of Ginsu knives and fudge.
