During the holiday the citizens traditionally wear cowboy outfits. Seeing a local in normal clothes without stylish accessories is almost impossible. Beautiful hats with wide brims, leather jackets and pants with fringe, bright plaid shirts and indigo jeans – these are the main attributes of festive attire. It should be noted that the fair sex also actively participates in all the festivities. Both male and female outfits are sold in many shops and stalls.
According to an old tradition the festival is opened by a beautiful parade. The best riders of the city participate in the parade. Many people come to see this solemn march. The key part of the event is the so-called "shepherd competition" – racing on domestic horses and bulls. However, there are more original competitions too. Brave cowboys are offered to show their talent of throwing a lasso, compete in milking wild cows and other exciting events.
