Wild West Day

May 1, 2017

Do a little panning for gold, rope a steer, and ride in a U. S. Mail stage coach at the Arboretum‘s “Wild West Day” on May 6.

Kids can learn how to write telegrams, play horse shoes, and watch a blacksmith. Christy Lewis of Trick Roper provides a roping demonstration, the Shadow Mountain Band plays live, and the U. S. Marshalls Posse performs a color guard and flag salute.

Jill Morganelli leads a tour of the Rose Garden, the Coach Barn has cowboy artifacts and Victorian clothing on view, the Arboretum’s Queen Anne Cottage offers tours, and the historical Santa Anita Depot is having an Open House.

Listen to a calliope—notes produced by steam whistles! Partake in “ranch” crafts, watch a weaving demonstration, and enjoy Western BBQ. Make a day of it!
