Barbecue on the LBJ Ranch Set for May 5
Wednesday, February 15, 2012 • Posted February 17, 2012

In keeping with the historic Head-of-State barbecues held on the LBJ Ranch during the Lyndon B. Johnson presidency of the 1960s, the National Park Service is hosting a barbecue on the LBJ Ranch on May 5, 2012, from 4:00pm to 9:00pm.

The 1960s barbecues always included good entertainment and tasty food. To ensure good times, the Friends of LBJ National Historical Park have arranged for The Salt Lick Barbeque to provide the food with all the trimmings. Pecan Street Brewing will supply cold refreshments. Following the “feast,” America’s favorite cowboys, the “comedy and western” group Riders In The Sky will provide a 90-minute show of true Western music with their own brand of wacky humor and way-out Western wit.

The classic cowboy quartet has chalked up over 6,100 concert appearances in all 50 states and 10 countries. Their cowboy charisma and comedic flair have earned them two Grammy awards and a membership in the Grand Ol’ Opry. Riders are happy to make a stop along the trail ride to pay a visit to the LBJ Ranch and the good folks of the Hill Country region.
