    COWBOY POETRY & MUSIC FESTIVAL

    by annk Updated Oct 5, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: A noteworthy annual event held for 4 days in March at the historic Melody Ranch Motion Picture Studio. Melody Ranch was owned by Gene Autry then restored by it's current owners in 1990. It simulates an old western town with it's wooden structures including a chapel, blacksmith, jailhouse, hotel, saloons, etc. Besides Cowboy Poetry there is live music, dancing, shopping, cowboy grub, horses and a variety street performers.

    Parking is offsite in designated lots and visitors are shuttled by bus to the event. It's very organized and buses run frequently. There is a daily admission charge and tickets must be purchased in advance for special performances.

    www.cowboyfestival.org

    Fondest memory: What I enjoy the most is the people that get dressed up in either 19th century clothes or cowboy attire. People really seem to get into the spirit of the event. Please see travelogue for more pics.

    At Fillmore & Western Railroad...

    by la_beba Written Oct 4, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: At Fillmore & Western Railroad you can see the kind of rolling stock the railroad barons made history with. More recently, it is the equipment used by movie studios with which to make Hollywood legends. Here you can take a ride in an antique train car or a historic rail line that dates back more than 100 years. From Santa Trains to the October Pumpkinliner to Murder Mystery Dinner Trains, every occasion on the Fillmore & Western Railroad it's just so awesome!!!!LOCATION:
    351 Santa Clara Ave, Fillmore
    800-773-TRAINS

    Favorite thing: You might wanna visit Close Encounters & Paintball U.S.A, and borrow a set of camouflage and get ready for fast-paced paintball warfare. It will test your skill as well as your agility! Camps and target practice are available for those who want to practice or learn tactics.LOCATION:

    T.P.ing: THE ART OF DECORATING...

    by la_beba Written Oct 4, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: T.P.ing: THE ART OF DECORATING YOUR FRIENDS' HOMES WITH TOILET PAPER (BUT TOILET PAPER: THE CHEAPEST KIND, YEAH... THE ONE THAT REMINDS YOU OF SAND PAPER, AND PUT IT UP ON TREES, PUT IT ALL OVER THE LAWN, ETC)
    Variations: (PROBABLY MORE LIKE DECORATING YOUR ENEMIES' HOMES) FILL THE LAWN WITH EITHER ALKA-SELTZERS OR BETTER YET WITH RICE KRISPIES CEREAL AND HEAR THEM RRRRROAR IN THE MORNING WHEN SPRINKLERS COME ON (YOU'VE EVER HEARD THEM ON YOUR CEREAL BOWL WHEN YOU POUR THE MILK?)
    As you may not be aware, I have a certain reputation for enjoying the process of 'TP'ing friends' homes..... and California has the perfect weather for doing so... hehehe... nice warm nights (‘cuz you need to wait outdoors ‘til people go to sleep to do this) I know! I know! I'm a witch!!!! :o) We had a lot of fun doing this (the pic here it's my friend Barbara's house), in the Santa Clarita Valley: my hometown for 10 yrs.... Now you have to agree.... this is quite a work of art! a 'masterpiece'! LOL We later found out from another friend who's a cop, that we could get a ticket of somewhere around the $500 if caught and so we stopped :o( Now.... you probably all think I'm such a dweeb!!!!! hahahaha Ok, it's out in the open now! great!

    Favorite thing: Here's a picture of the local view, through the ears of one of the horses. Not sure which one, as I was 'forced' to ride all four of them, one after the other, LOL!

    Fondest memory: What do I miss the most? Has to be the great hospitality afforded to me by Ann and Bob, and not forgetting Noodle, of course!
