It's time to start making plans for this year's Western Heritage Classic. There's a lot that goes on during the Classic and it's all geared toward the cowboy lifestyle and history. It's a four day event that is a throwback to the way it was long ago.

Things get kicked off on Thursday May 7th with the parade downtown and continue 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. There is also 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 Kimberly Dunn performing Friday night and Jake Hooker & 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 will be on sale April 25th at 10 am.
