Lewisville Western Days Festival, September 28 – 29, 2012
Lewisville may be looking forward to its future as one of America’s fastest-growing cities, but each year the denizens of the Denton County community take a sentimental look back to Lewisville’s 1800s origins with a two-day tribute to the Texas way of life.
- If you’re looking for a rootin’ tootin’ good time, mosey on over to see the gunfights that will take place at 8 p.m. on Friday and at 11:30 a.m, 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. on Saturday.
- If culinary competitions are your cup of tea, check out cooking demonstrations presented by chefs from top area eateries or cheer for local cooks at the OTPS Pie Baking Contest, while those with an appetite for a chow down showdown can sign up for the World Tamale Eating Championship.
- Little buckaroos can go giddy up in the Kiwanis Club of Lewisville’s Stickhorse Rodeo, then get a taste for creating culinary delights at ‘Lil Cowpoke Cookie Decorating. Kids can also enjoy a ride on the Boogie Boogie Choo Choo Train, bouncing on inflatables, and much more.
- Tap your feet to the beat of songs performed by headliners the Randy Rogers Band and the Josh Abbott Band during two days devoted to Texas tunes that will also include sets by Railhead, Kyle Bennett, Scott Lyle Band, Jerrod Medulla, Chaz Marie, Phil Pritchett, Jash Weathers Band and Brian Keane.
- Release your inner Urban Cowboy while line dancing inside the MCL Grand.
- If vintage vehicles get your motor running, check out the car display on Main Street.
- If you’re hankering to add a four-legged family member to your posse, head on over to Tailwaggers Ranch, where there will be pet adoptions from area rescues and shelters including Coppell Humane Society, Lewisville Animal Services, Weimarener Rescue of Texas, Recycled Pomeranians Rescue and Texas Husky Rescue. Low cost vaccinations and micro chipping will also be available.
- Take a gander at the cowboy-themed creations on display at the Where the West Begins Sculpture Show and Sale.
…and much more!
