Saturday we headed up the hill to downtown Bandera.....lots of stuff going on Saturday in this town. First stop was Busbee's Barbeque. I managed to snag several tables we pulled together while everyone was in line for their food. You order at a window and then they deliver to the table. I think everyone was happy with their food.
Checking out the vintage Oldsmobile.
Next stop....the Bandera Cattle Company Shootout. This group puts on a Gunfight behind the Bandera Visitor's Center every Saturday unless they have a paying gig somewhere else. It's free....donations gratefully accepted.
There are bleachers to sit on and even shade which is very welcome when it's warm. The actor's have original or recreated period costumes and put on several different skits.
The haze in this picture is from the blanks they are shooting.
Only one woman in the group. See the guy with the skunk headdress?
We were walking back to Main Street when these javelinas went by....not quietly I might add.
Our afternoon in the old west was not done yet. We all loaded up on the Conestoga wagon for a tour of the town.
The driver is a very colorful character.
Bandera is the Cowboy Capital of the World you know.....a very fun place to visit. There is no place like Bandera. When you visit the 11th Street Cowboy Bar, you might find horses, motorcycles, pickups, and cars lined up along the street.
