Over 300 Elementary Students to Attend Western Showcase
Wednesday, October 30, 2013 • Posted November 1, 2013

The Blanco Buggy Barn Museum and Carriage Hills Ranch will host visitors, kicking off The Second Annual Western Showcase. Friends, family members and lots of school-aged students from preschool to third grade, public schools and church groups and their sponsors will be traveling from the surrounding areas including Burnet, Blanco, Dripping Springs and more. The field trip will have a day of brown bag lunch, games, horse-drawn trolley rides and free visits to both the World War II and Buggy Barn Museum.

Wagonmasters Julie Schultz and Bill Winton from Goldthwaite, Texas will be providing student guest rides throughout the day. Students will have the opportunity to experience the mode of travel during a time period long gone.

Upon arrival to the ranch, a special chuck wagon cooking experience will take place. With all the new small-size chefs on the food network television programs competing in cooking competitions, this will be a real treat to see first-hand how cowboys enjoyed yummy biscuits out on the range, as prepared without electricity. Small samples will be provided along with a taste of homemade jelly and jams.

Bob and Nancy Sparks come from the Lubbock area and will be hosting the students cooking with their traveling chuck wagon just as it was done in the good old days! The Sparks family has been in the chuck wagon cooking competitions for years. They have made numerous trips to participate in various events in the Blanco Community for the past 13 years.

Other events throughout the day will be a coloring contest and a ring toss around the boot competition for prizes!
