The San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo will have its first queen this year. The lucky winner will have a place of honor in the opening parade which winds its way through the city on opening day and choice box seats to the 1978 shows. She also wins a western outfit from Harry’s Western Store, a fur felt, hand-creased Resistol cowboy hat and all-leather, hand-stitched boots to match her outfit. Finally, she wins a 7-day trip for two to Acapulco, Mexico with accommodations at the Hyatt Regency Acapulco with $500 expense money.
