Take a little trip back in time, back to when transportation involved a horse or mule, cooking a meal involved stoking the fire and the buffalo roamed the plains of West Texas. The Friends of the Abilene State Park Association is holding a Frontier Day at the State Park in Buffalo Gap on Saturday November 3rd. Dawn Capps, Park Ranger says “there will be activities and events that will appeal to all ages.” Here are the rest of the details.

Capps admitted that the event is still evolving as more things may be added from now until the actual ‘Frontier Day’ Saturday, November 3rd. “This will also be an excellent learning experience for anyone that wishes to participate” said Capps. The park will still be fully operational that day, however most of the activities will take place in what’s known as the ‘day use area’ of the State Park.
