Even though we don't normally feel cooler temperatures begin to roll into West Texas until early October, the past few weeks have most definitely felt like fall.

And fall in West Texas means super cool events like the Annual National Cowboy Symposium

The symposium gives attendees a glimpse into cowboy life including cowboy customs and traditions.

As always, there will be a chuck wagon cook-off competition, the annual horse parade, performs, exhibitions and much, much more.

Don't miss it. This year, the symposium is September 9 - 11 at the Lubbock Civic Center.

You can find more information about the event at the official website.
