Want to experience an authentic cowboy breakfast served outdoors? If so, then plan to attend the Ranch Hand Breakfast at the historic King Ranch.
Volunteers cook and serve the breakfast, consisting of eggs, biscuits ‘n gravy, tortillas, sausage, refried beans, juice and gallons of hot coffee. Attendees may eat at hand-made standup tables or sit on hay bales.
Those who attend are also treated to musical entertainment, featuring songs of the Old West. There are always plenty of cowboy storytellers to listen to, while actual King Ranch cowboys will stage team roping demonstrations and traditional cow camp cooking demonstrations.
Breakfast is served from 7:00 to 11:00 AM on Saturday, November 18th. Cost for the event is $6 per person, while children 3 and under eat free.
Tickets may be purchased in advance from the King Ranch Saddle Shop, Kingsville Visitor Center, King Ranch Museum and the King Ranch Visitor Center. You may also buy them at the event.
For information, call (800) 333-5032 or (361) 592-6411.
