Vegas Cowboys Up

Three-year-old Jaiden Allen sat atop his pony, King, waiting for the start of Saturday’s Cowboys Reunion Centennial Celebration parade.

Like many of the riders taking part, he grinned from ear to ear. He wasn’t about to miss this parade for anything, and that included a wedding that he was standing up in later that day. 

“He was asking about it for a couple of weeks,” his grandfather James Allen Sr. said. “He couldn’t wait. He was in a wedding (later that) afternoon, so it was a tight schedule.”
