The American Old West. A land of legends, good guys and bad guys. And most of all Cowboys. Wouldn't you love, maybe just for a day or two, live those days of adventure and song again?

Well, do I have great news for you!

Circle the weekend of June 2 and 3 on your calendar right now. The Western Spirit and Cowboy Festival will be held nearby, in Trent, South Dakota. It's two great days filled with cowboys, cowboy music, trail rides and...well, the great Western Spirit!
