The 65th San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo is here and if you haven't been, now is the time to check it out at a discount.

The Rodeo is offering up ample opportunities to get in in some of Ihe action for free or at a discounted price.

If you are interested in going, read on. Many of these Rodeo discount days may apply to you.

If you are over the age of 55, attend college, or active in the military, then you're in luck.

The Rodeo has taken "y'all" into special consideration and is allowing free ground admission on designated days just for you. Plan a day and take a kindred pal along for an even better time.

* Senior Days: Feb. 18. Anyone over the age of 55 gets free ground admission on these two Tuesdays. (Bring another senior buddy and see what trouble you can get into!)

* College Days: Feb. 13,20.Bring your current college ID for entry.

* Military Days: Feb. 14, 21. Valid military ID required. (If you have a main squeeze in the military as well, it could be a potentially fun Valentine's Day date.)

For those that can't get in free, no worries because there are other days to take advantage of, too. A particularly notable one to remember is Friday. Every Friday is Dollar Day. Admission, rides, hot dogs, popcorn and sodas in the carnival area cost a single buck.

The same applies on President's Day (Feb. 17.).

You can always hold out until the last Sunday of the month (Feb. 23) and attend Family Day. Nab a free admission coupon from Chick-FilA, and take the kids out for a day. Parking is discounted and costs $5.

While admission may come inexpensive, always remember to always carry additional cash for snacks, rides, parking and shows.

From the competitions, petting zoos and exhibits, the rodeo it promises to be tons of fun even without money. There are special days designated to get into the rodeo for free or at a major discount, so take advantage (Photo, Amanda Lozano)
