Main St Fort Worth Arts Festival
The festival ranks as one of the top 10 fine-arts events in the U.S.. and is held every April. Main Street is closed off and lined with white tents featuring artists from across the nation displaying anything from water paintings, photography, jewellery, sculptures of various materials and leather goods. The designs are unique and very interesting.

Bicycle Hitching Post
I really think these "hitching posts" were installed because the police department uses bicycles but it is always nice to think people are becoming more greener!

The Wagon Trail
There are 23 wagons in all participating in the parade and the weekend. All very realistic in trying to maintain the western tradition and the accuracy of a cowboy’s life on the trail.
