This is what Bandera's Memorial Day weekend celebration is all about - kids, patriotism, God and cowboys and plenty of bottled water! Last year, wranglers Jesse Cardenas and Kutter Riggle topped the Ridin' the River Cowboy Fellowship entry in the Memorial Weekend Parade, sponsored by the Bandera Chamber of Commerce. This year's version kicks off at 11 am, Saturday, May 25. The 30th annual Cowboy Capital Rodeo Association PRCA Memorial Weekend Rodeo takes place Friday, Saturday and Sunday, May 24, 25 and 26, at Mansfield Park. Gates open at 8 pm each night.
