New Activities Set for 2015 Santa Clarita Cowboy Festival

Post Date:04/10/2015 11:00 AM
The 2015 Santa Clarita Cowboy Festival, presented by Logix Federal Credit Union, will feature new Wild West activities on April 18 - 19, 2015 at its new location in William S. Hart Park.

Alongside four stages featuring several highly-anticipated Cowboy Festival musical acts, William S. Hart Park will also host numerous Western attractions throughout the park. Festival visitors can test their rodeo skills on the twists, turns, bucks and jolts of the mechanical bull, or unleash their inner cowboy as they try to rope an almost-real calf from a life-size horse. Adventurous attendees can try hatchet throwing, take aim at the archery range or practice their “slick-shootin” with laser tag quick-draw.

At 12:45 p.m. and 3:15 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, Heritage Junction will be transformed into a battleground for Civil War reenactments. Visitors can see history come to life as soldiers from both sides of the Civil War reenact life on a campaign. Reenactors interested in joining the living history encampments can contact Ed Mann at howitzers1@aol.com for more information.

Popular Cowboy Festival activities will return, including gun spinning, trick roping, Native American dancers, living history exhibits and much more.
