LaGrange County Parks will host Cowboy Day from noon until 4 p.m. on Saturday, July 27, at David Rogers Memorial Park to celebrate the 9th Annual National Day of the Cowboy.
Cowboys and cowgirls are invited to bring their families for a picnic at David Rogers Memorial Park. Campfires will be burning to roast some grub and the Friends of LaGrange County Parks Chuckwagon will be selling hot dogs and beans.
Cowboy family activities start in the afternoon and include learning how to saddle a horse, roping, horseshoe pitching, a Nerf shooting gallery, western crafts, and more.
The big hit of the event, the Cap Gun Fast Draw, will be held at the end of the day. Youth and adults can compete for the Golden Guns.
Special cowboy guest for the day is Mark Redmond, author of The Adventures of Arty Anderson.
Indiana Governor Mike Pence has signed a proclamation officially recognizing the day in Indiana.
A small donation to Park Your Horse is suggested. David Rogers Memorial Park is located at 2355W 550S in Wolcottville.
