One of the things I like the most about living in this area is that there are things that make Abilene, well...Abilene. Things that only take place right here in the area. I was thinking the other day about all the events that seem to come around every year. These events are a big deal and bring folks from miles around.

Abilene has several annual events that every native attends. For me, I can usually tell what season it is just by the events that happen. One of my favorite times of year is when the West Texas Fair and Rodeo arrives. When it comes to town, I know fall is not too far away. Scroll along with me and check out these must-not-miss events for any Abilenian.

How many of these events and happenings have you attended? Many of these such as ACU Sing Song not only grab the attention of Abilenians but its draws folks from all over. Other events like the Outlaws and Legends Music Festival last more than one-day packing in artists from all over the country. It's easy to tell when many of these events happen due to the shortage of hotel rooms in the area. That's how massive they can get.

One thing is for sure, Abilene loves to get out and have a good time. For me, it's enjoying a great meal at one of the local eateries and there are plenty out there. Look below for some of the highest rated.
