As plans for the 49th annual Cowboy Homecoming are underway for October 24-25, leaders are looking to move the festival back to the Atascosa River Park for next year – their 50th celebration.
Chico Cox, Pleasanton Chamber of Commerce president, approached the Pleasanton City Council at their September 18 meeting to ask for their consideration of a new User Agreement for use of the Atascosa River Park for Turn-n-Burn and Cowboy Homecoming for 2015.
