23rd Annual National Cowboy Symposium continues

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Spurs and cowboy hats were the clothing of choice Saturday, at the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center. The 23rd Annual National Cowboy Symposium continued for it's second day.

The three day event kicked off Friday and is open to anyone who wants to learn about cowboys and the culture that helped shape the heritage of the South Plains.

Local cowboy John Levancy attended the event and says he hopes other people who attend will appreciate the history of the event.

"I hope they take away a better understanding of our roots and what developed this part of the country and what made this country gain some stability," Levancy said. "Ranching built this part of the world, it settled it and allowed everything else to develop."

Tickets for the event are $10.00 for adults and $7.00 for Seniors.
