The Wild West: When Bronc Busters Wore Lipstick
Tubac Presidio State Historic Park
Saturday, July 28
The National Day of the Cowboy is Saturday, July 28 and we have a fantastic exhibit for all wannabe cowboys and cowgirls. Get a glimpse into the skilled, showy, and high-risk lives of cowgirls of the early 1900s. The display includes rare items from Western enthusiast and preservationist Cheri Raftery, who calls her collection “very personal.” Authentic cowgirl dress, historic photos and original artwork of them riding in rodeos and exhibitions put the cowgirls in context. The exhibit runs through the summer of 2018. Included with park admission: $7 adult, $2 youth 7-13, children free.
Ongoing Event: Children’s Garden
The children’s garden by the schoolhouse allows children of all ages to play hopscotch, marbles, and jump-rope the old-fashioned way.
