Oh, boy, there is going to be a lot going on this weekend in Fort Worth’s Stockyards. On Saturday, December 5, there is going to be a Christmas tree lighting, a holiday parade, pony rides, and a petting zoo. Cowboy Santa will make an appearance and pose for photos; you’ll want to bring your own camera or use your phone. It’s a joyful time from 12:00 noon until 5:00 PM. Please note that the parade begins at 4:00 PM.
The Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District at Stockyards Station is the host for this annual Christmas in the Stockyards event . The event will be on the lawn of the Historical Livestock Exchange Building, inside Stockyards Station and along East Exchange Avenue. This is a free holiday event centered on western heritage activities that the entire family can enjoy. Like what you ask? Okay, read on, my friend, read on:
- COW-CAMP presented by the Fort Worth Herd
- The 92.1 Hank FM Party Patrol
- Live music with local children’s choirs
- Coloring contest at Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame
- Holiday face painters
- Games and fun
I’ve heard that there’s even going to be chicken roping, armadillo races, and cow milking. What a hoot! Annie will be there to see exactly how it’s done. The Fort Worth Herd Cow Camp is from 1:30 – 2:30 PM. Call 817-625-9715 and ask for Paulina Macias who can give you more information about Saturday’s activities, or just go on over and visit the Stockyards. You’ll be glad you did.
