A Snippet From True West Magazine

Since 1969, Bishop, California, has celebrated Mule Days every Memorial Day Weekend. The three-day Western event in the Owen Valley honors the Old West traditions and history of the Eastern Sierra, as well as the beginning of mule-packing season into the Sierra Nevada.

At the top of California’s Owens Valley north of Lone Pine and south of Mammoth Lakes, Bishop is in the heart of California’s historic Eastern Sierra Nevada cattle country. Founded in 1862, a year after pioneer rancher Samuel Bishop drove his herd of cattle into the area to help feed miners in Aurora, Bishop has been a thriving center of livestock, cowboy and mining culture ever since. Today, Bishop celebrates its Western heritage throughout the year, but is best-known worldwide for its Mule Days Celebration held every Memorial Day Weekend.
