Celebrating National Day of the American Cowboy

Cowboy re-enactments, music, poetry, vendors, food, and prizes are part of National Day of the American Cowboy in Ramona from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, July 28.

Presented by Doug “Ranger Doug” Oliver of Ranger Doug’s Shootists’ Emporium, the sixth annual event will be held at Mountain Valley Ranch, 842 Highway 78.

Local cowboy Steve Tellam will talk about cowboying in the 21st century, Ranger Dan Parker will present cowboy poetry, and Rob Lewallen and his band will entertain with cowboy-style music. Visitors can watch cowboy hats being made at the Ritter Hat Co. booth, and they can be measured for custom-made cowboy and cowgirl shirts at the Waddie Wear counter.

Prizes will be given away throughout the day, Ramona Ag Boosters will man the food booth, other western-style presentations are planned, and a drawing for a 45 caliber cowboy revolver will be held. Only 200 tickets for the revolver, at $10 each, will be sold. As of Monday morning, Oliver had sold 120.
