These two are from the historic town of Barkerville which was a bustling town in the gold rush days. If you click on the link you can read more about this great place. Don't you love their costumes?

There was plenty of entertainment the whole weekend and the Kamloops Cowboy Festival is a major stopping point for the Cowboy Poet circuit for North America.
There was also plenty of good music which included a country music Rising Star showcase competition at the trade show where we were set up.
There were also workshops to attend for cowboy poetry writing and yodeling.
