It’s not too early to be thinking about what to do with your next holiday, in fact  Presidents Day is right around the corner! I’m Susan Allen and when Open Range returns I’ll tell you about a town that will be celebrating our cowboy heritage that very  weekend with a party you won’t want to miss . Trust me, Ellensburg Washington will be hopping Presidents Day weekend as people flock to the beautiful rodeo town to celebrate the cowboy way in the Spirit of the West Gathering. Not only will there be nationally known cowboy and cowgirl entertainers like Michael Martin Murphey ( whose song Wildfire still brings tears to my eyes), Chris Issacs, Adriane and a host of others will  be on stage to bring you a weekend  full of traditional cowboy music, poetry and art. If you missed cowboy Christmas in Vegas well this is the next best thing,the perfect venue to buy a cowboy hat or buckeroo gear; silver spurs, wild rags, braided reins or horse hair mecates given all  the unique venders in attendance. Now I especially love the theme of this years Spirit of the West ; Local Cowboys: Living Legends because I know some of my friends will be sharing their history of ranching and rodeo in the breathtaking Kittitas Valley and historic Ellensburg, one of my favorite western small towns.  Now here's the deal, hotels book early so get busy today and make reservations if you want to join us in Ellensburg  this upcoming presidents day weekend February 16th to 19th..  and here's the link I promised http://ellensburgcowboygathering.com/about/cowboy-gathering
