NATIONAL COWGIRL 
MUSEUM PARADE

HOME    TEXAS REGIONS

June 9, 2002 the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame opened in the Cultural District of Fort Worth.

The photos you will see here were taken at the Cowgirl Parade the day before the opening.

This parade was a typically Texan spectacle. Very entertaining.

Here we see a typical Texan looking at the growing crowd of parade viewers and the new building housing the Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame.

This Cowgirl rope trickster managed to keep her rope spinning even as the wagon seemed to be trying to make her lose her balance.

This Cowgirl was quite a crowd pleaser.

cow20.jpg (24973 bytes) This Indian Cowgirl was also quite a crowd pleaser.

The Cowgirls carrying the Six Flags over Texas seemed to be having a fine time on their Albino horses.

All the way from the state of Washington, the Rodeo Grandma's of Ellensburg, Washington.

It seems you can't have a parade in Texas without the Army of the Lord having a contingent.

These three photos show some very young Cowgirls with the third photo being the youngest Cowgirl in the Parade.

This looks like another Rodeo Grandma.

This Cowgirl decided not to ride her horse.

These Cowgirls represent some of the more wild Cowgirls, possibly the ones with part time jobs in saloons.

It is not clear if the Cowgirls in this photo are associated with the Cowgirls in the previous photo.

Also unclear is why 100s of Girl Scouts marched in the Cowgirl Parade. They were near the end of the parade and so there was quite a collection of fully digested horse food piled on the pavement, so the Girl Scouts had to walk way to the side in order to keep their shoes out of the muck.

Let's go to the Stockyards to see some
  Cowboys and Longhorns and more Cowgirls...
