This complex is one of the largest indoor arenas in Texas. Livestock shows, karaoke sessions, Mutton Bustin and many other exciting events take place from time to time. The main event, of course, is the Heart O' Texas Fair and Rodeo held every autumn. The multi-purpose air conditioned facility has a rodeo seating capacity of more than 6,000 with a space of 38,750 square feet of arena floor. Almost 9,000 can be accommodated during non-rodeo events. Lots of dust, grime, cowboys and their hats, but not in that order! High School Graduations, banquets and parties are also organized with prior arrangement. Ample parking is available.
Ridgewood Country Club offers wonderful golf facilities throughout the year. The club was established in the year 1947 and includes a fine 18-hole course apart from other sports amenities.
