Make plans for this year's 4 day Western Heritage Classic event.  There's a lot that goes on during the Classic and it's all geared toward the cowboy lifestyle and history.

Things get kicked off on Thursday May 11th with the parade downtown and continues throughout the weekend with the worlds largest bit and spur show, a chuck wagon cook-off, matched horse races, children's rodeo, cowboy poets and western artisans, ranch horse clinics, and trade shows. Be sure to also catch the Ranch Horse Association of America's National Finals during the weekend of events.

There are concerts to featuring great Texas music. This year you will find The Santa Fe Band performing Friday night and Jake Hooker and The Outsiders on Saturday night.

This is fun for the entire family so don't miss out. Make your plans now to include the Western Heritage Classic. Tickets on sale now.
