‘Wild West Days’ celebrating California history at Arboretum – May 4-5

Calling all cowboys and cowgirls, young and old, put on your hats and boots and step back in time to the late 1800s when Elias J. “Lucky” Baldwin owned Rancho Santa Anita and turned it into a bountiful agricultural oasis on land that is now the Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanic Garden.
Celebrate the historic days of the old Baldwin Ranch during Wild West Days, May 4-5. Enjoy an old-fashioned American Barn dance with caller Susan Michaels and the Triple Chicken Foot band, and the music of The Show Ponies. Tradición Dance Company will present dances from different regions of Mexico. The Queen Anne Cottage, which Baldwin built in 1885 for his new bride, the Coach Barn and the Santa Anita Depot will be open for touring. There will be stagecoach rides and family activities, including roping and a root beer saloon for kids, as well as food and much more. Come on over to Wild West Days, May 4-5.
