There's more to Cowboys than gunfights and train robberies, come downtown Saturday to learn all the other cool stuff!

The old west is one of my favorite historical periods and is really misunderstood by a lot of folks.  Sure, the gunfights and train robberies were a part of it, as were battles with Indians and the coming of the railroads. Day to day life though wasn't really all that exciting.  (Except in Tombstone ... they really did live with daily gunfights.)

The Cowboys, farming and ranching and so much more really made the old west and Saturday, (7/27), all that will be celebrated with "Day Of The Cowboy".  From 2pm - 6pm, the El Paso Museum of History will host:

... an afternoon filled with fun performances, hands-on activities, and history for visitors of all ages. EPMH has partnered with organizations and businesses from around the El Paso area in order to offer different perspectives on cowboys and the West. With so many different groups and local food vendors participating in the event, guests are encouraged to visit each booth for the full experience. - visitelpaso.com

The event is free!  Plus, you can park at the Glory Road terminal for free Saturday and catch a free trolley ride back and forth to the museum!
