Everyone's favorite, the Friday Night Demolition Derby:

Could realistically spend the next 500 words trying to explain the thrill of a demolition derby, but even then it would be undersold because the truest joy of the experience is through the eyes of your children. Twisted Metal Mayhem, just like Monster Jam, this is the greatest thing to happen in the young life of any kid, and you can witness it together on Friday night, September 1st.

Carnival and Fair Food always take the cake:

Each day there are unlimited ride wristbands available, and nobody considers any fair experience complete without the amazing food options.

These images, courtesy of the Bell County Museum in Belton, give a glimpse into the lives of the people who called the Cowhouse Valley home before it became Belton Lake.
