The 20th Annual Cowboy Festival in Santa Clarita!
By Erin & Melody
On Saturday, April 20 and Sunday April 21 the 20th Annual Cowboy Festival in Santa Clarita, CA took place. What better place to host a cowboy festival than at the famous Melody Ranch Motion Picture Studio? A pretty fitting place if you ask me! The best Western performers were rounded up to entertain and delight everyone. Tall tales and plaintive melodies of the working cowboys could be heard around town, as well as traditional songs and dances of the Hispanic and Native American cultures. You truly could see history come alive with demonstrations of trick roping, blacksmithing, quilting, and an abundance of children’s activities from the cowboy era.
The event was a huge success and attracted the largest attendance of any event in the history of the Festival. It’s also estimated that Saturday’s crowd was the largest the City had ever seen in a single day. Being that I love to “Horse Around,” it would only be fitting for “Horsing Around In LA” to attend the cowboy festival, right? We were provided with two press passes to go out and enjoy the Cowboy Festival. 😉 Enjoy the pictures, and hope to see you all at the next Cowboy Festival next year!
