Fort Worth: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.
