Drive downtown this weekend and you'll see a number of cowboy hats, boots, buckles and even chuck-wagons. The Cowboy Symposium kicked off with a barbecue luncheon Thursday. A number of city council members, police officers and even NewsChannel 11's John Robison took part. The annual event explores the cowboy tradition through music, poetry, story-telling and art.
