Western Heritage Classic kicks off this weekend in Abilene
It's time for the 29th annual Western Heritage Classic on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Held on the grounds of the Taylor County Expo Center in Abilene, the three-day weekend event's showcase is the ranch rodeo, though it offers many activities that feature western interests as well as history.
Thursday night is the parade kickoff at 6:30 p.m., followed by a street dance later that night. KTXS will re-air the parade at 6:30 p.m. Friday after KTXS News at 6.
Some of the activities to enjoy this weekend include: the world’s largest bit and spur show, a chuckwagon cookoff, matched horse races, children's rodeo, cowboy poets and western artisans, ranch horse clinics, trade shows, and a giant western parade.
