The National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum's Chuck Wagon Gathering and Children's Cowboy Festival set for Saturday and Sunday will go on, despite the impact of recent and upcoming weather. The event has been moved indoors.

Every possible activity will be moved into the museum building, organizers said. There will be no activities on the festival grounds, which means the cancellation of chuck wagon cooking and pony and wagon rides.

The stew meat already acquired for the event has been donated to the Regional Food Bank.

Festival pricing has been discounted to normal admission rates, and discount coupons and passes will be honored. Cowboy Church begins at 9 a.m. Sunday in the Special Events Center. Guests who arrive for Cowboy Church no later than 9:30 a.m. will receive free admission.

Free parking is available in the main lot and free shuttles will run from Remington Park to the front door as the need arises.
