Without cowboys, spurs would fall out of fashion, open ranges would be even more desolate, and cattle would require an elaborate network of GPS devices to find their corrals.

The Wild Western Festival—a benefit for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society—gallops into Glendale with trick ponies, gunslinging stuntmen, old-timey musicians, and noted Hollywood actors. Start the day with a bang by hitting the wax-bullet shooting range with Tombstone's Peter Sherayko or rehearsing bongo solos with Noel Neill, who starred as Lois Lane in the original Superman TV series. Troubadours such as Tom Hiatt & the Sundown Riders will fill ears with cowboy tunes, and Moontie Sinquah & His Wild Sons will share authentic Native American dances. Groupons also grant admission to Mysterioso and Colonel Travis's magic show and Dr. Buck's action-packed stunts and mustache-twirling demonstrations. Pintsize cowpokes can ride ponies, soar down the 185-foot zipline, or tumble through a town of bounce houses as grownups tour historic homes and vendor booths. Guests can show off their own Wild West talents by competing in fast-draw showdowns, participating in costume contests, or devouring an entire cast-iron skillet at a chuck-wagon cookoff.
Though the Wild Western Festival sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
