The days of 100-degree temperatures are finally behind us (we hope), and cool fall weather is on our doorstep. No longer will we have to resort being stuck inside and staying as close to the AC as possible. It’s time to get back outside and see what fall in Abilene has to offer!
There is one Abilene event that truly kicks off the fall season. The West Texas Fair and Rodeo is one of the biggest and most exciting events in town. It brings in thousands of visitors and gives us all a taste of wonderful food, thrilling rides and great music. No better way to kick off fall than at the fair and rodeo.
