Two crowd-pleasing country bands, The Powell Brothers on Saturday, and For Love and Country on Sunday, perform from 2-4 p.m. The Lake Highlands Wranglers perform at 11 a.m. and the SMU Mustang Mavericks perform directly after on Saturday, and again on Sunday at 11 a.m. All performances and live music takes place at the Martin Rutchik Concert Stage and Lawn. Guests can learn how to line dance after both performances. Meat Church demonstrates how to prepare some Texas-inspired dishes at 1 p.m. in A Tasteful Place.

Guests can stop by the table in the Entry Plaza on both days and enter “These Boots Are Made for Walking” contest to prove they have the best boots. A picture of their boots is taken, and the winner is announced at the Martin Rutchik Concert Stage and Lawn at 3 p.m. Winners receive a pack of four concert tickets to a Cool Thursdays Concert.
