    Guns! Guns! Guns!

    OK Sam Bass, hands up!

    This is Texas. It IS a gun culture and guns are legal. If you are a citizen with a clean criminal record you can purchase guns over the counter. You can qualify for a concealed weapons permit also. We like guns. We like feeling protected. It is OUR heritage. I don't expect outsiders or visitors to understand it but they dog gone well better know about it.

    Round Rock is the home of a famous Wild West shoot out between Sheriff A.W. Grimes and the notorious outlaw Sam Bass. I live right off of A.W. Grimes Road. Law was handled by gun carrying Sheriffs, Police, and Texas Rangers. It still is today.

    Main Street Art Stroll

    When we traveled through Round Rock, the Main Street Art Stroll was set up on the town green. This event occurs on the second Sunday of each month from 11am-5pm, featuring local artists and live music.

    The town also stages annual events such as:

    Christmas Family Night
    5k for Clay
    July 4th Frontier Days Celebration with Fireworks
    Fall Fun Fest
    Round Rock Boat Regatta and others

    A 14,000 square foot free public skate park was opened in 2007. It is home to the Round Rock Express, a Class AAA Pacific Coast League minor league baseball team owned by Nolan Ryan.
