Throughout the year, the area of Corpus Christi, TX holds several events. In January, the Nueces County Junior Livestock show is held at the Richard M. Borchard Fairgrounds.1 This is the biggest junior livestock show in the state of Texas. Exhibits, demonstrations, and vendors are all part of the fun at the show.  Nestled along the Gulf Coast, Corpus Christi, TX has ample opportunity for beach fun and water sport excitement. With a location almost halfway between Houston and the Mexican border, the climate is warm. The city is located at the same latitude as Tampa, Florida. Not surprisingly, fishing is a very popular hobby. Besides the Gulf, anglers can cast their lines in Corpus Christi Bay as well as Laguna Madre. People who want to fish from the water can also engage in kayak fishing which has become a favorite pastime. With a high coastal wind speed (one of the highest in the United States), wind sports are frequently enjoyed. Kite flying, wind surfing and kite boarding are possibilities for people who want to take advantage of the breeze. Padre and Mustang Islands are additional beaches in close proximity to the city. Endangered sea turtle nests are frequently spotted on both of these islands and the state releases hatchlings each year in an effort to help boost their population.
