The Herd Twice Daily, 11:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. The Texas Longhorn and the American cowboy are two of the most enduring symbols of the Old West. They're a big reason why Fort Worth earned the nickname "Cowtown." And they formed the core of the great cattle drives of the late nineteenth century. Now, the romance and mystique of cowboys and cattle drives returns to Fort Worth with The Herd - Texas Longhorns driven by genuine Texas cowhands - offering an unforgettable glimpse into the past. You'll hear the jingle of spurs, the cattle bawling, and the rhythm of the hoof beats. As The Herd passes, a bygone era comes to life before your eyes. The world's only twice-daily cattle drive happens at 11:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. daily in the Stockyards National Historic District, 130 E. Exchange Ave. in Fort Worth. Look for the Drovers before and after each cattle drive for photo opportunities and to learn more about life on the trail! Note: drives are not held on Easter Sunday, Thanksgiving Day or Christmas Day. Information: www.fortworth.com.

Denton:


Denton Community Market Saturdays Apr. Through Nov. Denton Community Market takes place Saturdays through November near downtown Denton.

Discover Denton's historic Courthouse-on-the-Square, built in 1896, making the building at the center of a town more than 100 years old! The building itself is beautiful with architectural details that make the courthouse shine as an icon for Denton County. The best part about the Courthouse-on-the-Square is that everything in Denton seems to revolve around it. With something going on every day on the Square, there is no such thing as a dull day in downtown Denton. Whether you're looking for a place to listen to live music, grab a drink, or even an old-fashioned ice cream sundae, you only have to walk a few steps from the Courthouse to find it. Information: www.discoverdenton.com.

First Friday Denton First Friday of every month First Friday Denton is on the first Friday of every month, and is significant because that is the day when artists and artisans in the business district surrounding the Denton County Historic Courthouse on the Square open their doors for visitors and patrons to visit and see them at work, browse and perhaps buy a unique piece of art, jewelry or a myriad of other art objects - for yourself or someone special. And First Friday also offers patrons a chance to visit their favorite restaurants and businesses that have extended First Friday hours, so come to First Friday ready for music, art, books, coffee and great original foods. Information: www.firstfridaydenton.com.

Fridays and Saturdays Ghosts of Denton haunted history tours. The city of Denton, and the county surrounding it, has fascinating history. It also has more than its fair share of ghostly stories. Join Shelly Tucker, a professional storyteller for 27 years, on a 90 minute tour. Most of the tour revolves around the square, although there is one (and possibly now there are two) stops about two blocks away. Tour participants should wear comfortable shoes and weather appropriate clothing. In summer, it's a good idea to bring a bottle of water to stay hydrated. Scheduled tours begin at 8:00 p.m (sharp) on Friday and Saturday nights from Jupiter House Coffee at 106 N. Locust in Denton (on the east side of the Courthouse-on-the-Square). Advance tickets are available online or at Jupiter House Coffee. Information: www.ghostsofdenton.com.
