The inaugural Texas Forever Fest offered a variety of Western-themed entertainment March 26 at Haggard Park in Plano.

Hosted by the city of Plano in partnership with H-E-B, the free festival featured live music from artists such as Tejas Brothers, Hayden Haddock, Walt Wilkins and Roger Creager.


Attendees also had the chance to shop vendors, visit a kids zone, and take photos with the mascots from the Texas Rangers and the Dallas Cowboys. A strolling card shark, a trick roper and more Western-themed attractions also entertained the crowd.
