Nature, heritage, and ranch-style cooking enthusiasts are invited to attend Wild in Willacy Boot Fest. Our county prides itself in offering its guests the opportunity to explore the natural resource of some of the wildest places in Texas. Wild in Willacy Boot Fest offers its guests an opportunity to 'go beyond the gates' of some otherwise inaccessible ranches located east, west, and north of our county. The tours to our local unique ranches are among the favorite events offered at this festival. These tours offer nature lovers the opportunity to 'get up close and personal' with many species of wildlife including birds, butterflies, and perhaps a glimpse at the Ferruginous Pygmy Owl.
