District Event: Stampede Houston
Join your fellow Kansans at Stampede Houston for a Texas experience at the 2022 LCMS Youth Gathering on July 9 from 5-7 p.m. We will be serving up Texas BBQ with delicious sides. Be ready to take your photo with a live Texas Longhorn, learn to line dance, sing karaoke, ride the mechanical bull (with signed waiver) and more! This is a great chance to get to know other Kansas youth and leaders and spend some time in fellowship. If you ride District buses, you will be transported to the event and dropped off at the doors of Minute Maid park with plenty of time to find seats for the first Mass Event. Cost will be $40 per person.
