MOSTHistory Cattle Drive
July 20 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am
This summer, families will get an opportunity to saddle up their “horses,” round up their stray “Longhorns,” and drive ‘em through the Will Looney Legacy Park as part of the first-ever MOSTHistory Cattle Drive!
Meeting in the morning to beat the summer heat, the Cattle Drive will be a fun-filled, outdoor, educational program developed for kids ages 8 through 14, although all ages are welcome! Guided by museum staff and volunteers, kids will stop at 10 stations where they will learn about different aspects of the Cattle Drive era through activities such as making a brand, rounding up cattle, avoiding rustlers, learning to make a campfire, eating cowboy grub, lassoing a maverick and much more. A tour through the River Frontier and River Highway galleries is included. The Cattle Drive will begin promptly at 9 a.m. and end at 11:30 a.m. Sign up your cowboys and cowgirls by calling Associate Education Officer Joe Fox at 956-383-6911. There will be a charge of $15 per cowhand ($10 for those who are FRIENDS of MOSTHistory), so have your credit card handy. We hope to see y’all down the trail!
