    Saddle up and celebrate America's cowboys this weekend in Fort Worth.

    On Saturday, July 23, the 5th Annual National Day of the American Cowboy celebration will take place in front of the Cowtown Coliseum.

    The event is voted the best cowboy tribute event in the nation by American Cowboy Magazine. It gives families and the general public the opportunity to experience and appreciate the role cowboys and cowgirls have played and continue to play in everyday life.

    Free activities and contests include watermelon eating, seed-spitting, best mustache, most worn-out boots and buckaroo coloring among others.

    The daily cattle drive isn't the only reason people visit the The Fort Worth Historic Stockyards. They pop in for visions from beyond the grave!
