Round-up Parade, Mason 1

Rollin’ rollin’ rollin’

Keep them cattle rollin’

Move ‘em out

Bring ‘em in

Head ‘em up

Ride ‘em in

Cut ‘em out

Round ‘em up

It’s Round-Up Weekend.


Saturday, July 8th.

A Mason tradition for umpteen years.

Fifty-three, to be exact.



Candy for the kids.

Horseback riders.

The only thing missing is a marching band.

Linger on the Courthouse lawn.

Cicadas serenade in the shade.

Take it all in.

And spend your money.

Keeping it local.

Arts and crafts.

Live music.




And the 2017 Queen’s Court Coronation.

Fun for the whole family.

(As the saying goes.)

Get all the details from Jennifer at the Mason Chamber of Commerce.

Go to

Or call (325) 347-5758.

Or drop by.

They’re on the north side of the square next to Willow Creek Café.

All the shops and restaurants will be open too.

Around the square.

And beyond.

Don’t miss Cherokee Rose.

A charming little shop with rare books and antiques.

In a charming little rock building.

And across from them is Country Collectibles.

Wander through there.

You’re bound to find something you can’t live without.

Or Mason Resale Barn.

A vast array of antiques, furniture, dishes, paintings, and jewelry.

All three just a couple blocks off the square on Hwy 87.

Keep going and you’ll find more food.

Texas Deadwood BBQ on the left.

It’s all good.

That’s Mason
