The 2017 Ridgecrest Petroglyph Festival takes place on November 4-5 at Petroglyph Park. (It'll be just half a mile from the Vagabond Inn Ridgecrestabout a 10-minute walk!) Here are your top 5 reasons to check out the Festival that weekend:

The Maturango Museum offers tours of the actual Coso Rock Art District (inside Naval Air Weapons Station China Lake) over these 2 days. These exclusive tours require a lot of planning—nabbing one during the Festival is one of your best chances for catching a rare glimpse of this incredible canyon.


4. Encounter (adorable) wild animals

Wild burros will be displayed by the Bureau of Land Management. It's the kid-friendly version of a wild horse encounter. You can even feed them!


3. Catch a flick

Film screenings will be held at Ridgecrest's Historic USO Building. Even in November, Ridgecrest gets sunny and hot. Take a break from the heat and sit in on one of Saturday's Native American film screenings.
