Children and their parents endured cold temperatures and intermittent rain Saturday to come to the grounds of the Oklahoma History Center in Oklahoma City for the center's annual Cowboy Round-up.

Cowboys and chuck wagons were on hand to bring the cattle drive era to life.

The event's activities included pony rides, stick-horse races, roping demonstrations, branding, a medicine man show, biscuits cooked in Dutch ovens, and a chance for children to make a braided rope they could take home as a souvenir.

Children were encouraged to dress the part, and many did — wearing boots, vests, bandannas, chaps and cowboy hats.
