The Old West Festival is back! Some of you may recall that we discovered the Old West Festival last fall and our kids had a blast. It was so much fun and I definitely looked forward to it returning this year. However, I did not expect to help promote it and now I am! Here is the latest information for its 6th year along with some photos of our adventure last year.
When is the Old West Festival?
The Old West Festival runs Saturdays and Sundays September 7 to October 6, 2013 from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. rain or shine! I did not know this last year (if it happened) but this year there are theme weekends. Read descriptions in detail on the Old West Festival’s Theme Weekends page.

Disclaimer: I was also given a 4-pack of tickets this year to help promote the Old West Festival. I think our family will most likely attend on the baseball weekend. No shocker there considering Henry’s latest obsession!
