Trickroping in No Man’s Land

Going back in time just a bit, Lewis Events was invited to participate in the Sabine Freestate Festival held in Florien, Louisiana. The annual festival highlights the unique period in history from 1806 until 1822 when a portion of the state was designated as “No Man’s Land” or the “Neutral Strip”. The region was a disputed area between Spanish Texas and the United States’ newly acquired Louisiana Purchase.  Local officers of Spain and the United States agreed to leave the Neutral Ground temporarily outside the jurisdiction of either country.

Over a period of two days, we performed multiple shows that included trick roping, whip-cracking stunts, storytelling, and virtual calf roping.

The festival offered a variety of activities and entertainment choices including a treasure hunt, BBQ contest, carnival, comedy show, folk music jam, parade, dance concert, vendor and food booths, a horse-drawn carriage, and the famous made-on-site sugar cane syrup. The mule did not seem to mind walking in circles all day long, powering the sugarcane-crushing machine. The syrup was then boiled over a wood fire until it reached the syrup stage.

We made a variety of great friends over the three days at the festival and enjoyed our wonderful experience in Florien.

Lewis Events designs and creates amazing parties, special occasions, and corporate events throughout Southern California, Park City, Salt Lake, Utah Valley/Silicon Slopes, and beyond.

Trick Roping with the Cowboys at the Ft. Worth Stockyards

Lewis Events trick roping at Ft Worth Stockyrds

Traveled to Dallas/Ft. Worth this fall. One of our destinations was the fascinating historic Ft. Worth Stockyards. It began with the stock parade as the cowboys drove a herd of longhorns down the main street. Behind the Live Stock Exchange building, a cool experience was the “Ft. Worth Herd” where the cowboys explain the history of the cattle drive and show off the long horns up close. We took the rare opportunity to visit with the cowboys, trick roping and roping the virtual calf. We remained long after the crowds had departed, telling stories and sharing roping tricks with the cowboys.

And finally all together with the cowboys.
