Fort Griffin Fandangle

Since 1938, Texas' oldest outdoor musical, the Fort Griffin Fandangle, has been presented during the last two weekends of June in the Prairie Theater about historic Fort Griffin, a military outpost established in 1867 near Albany and now a state park. The program, the content of which is different each year, attempts to recapture the theatrical charm of the American West.

The show offers covered wagons and buggies, a stagecoach, a replica of the first Texas Central Railroad train, an oil derrick, and cowboys whose ancestors pushed Longhorn herds up the nearby Great Western Cattle Trail. The Dallas Morning News describes Fandangle, accordingly: "as professional as a multimillion dollar Broadway musical, with sets and costumes to match, with a cast of three hundred". The Abilene Reporter-News calls the program "Frontier history served up with genuine earthiness, spiced by rare humor."[10]

Since youth, Bomar had spent the summer months in New Mexico. He moved permanently to Ranchos de Taos from New York in 1972, and died in Ranchos de Taos in 1991.Together with his cousin Reilly Nail, Bomar founded the Old Jail Art Center in Albany, Texas in 1980. The core of the museum's collection was formed from Nail's and Bomar's collections, with Asian art from the collections of their mothers. The museum has a strong holding of Fort Worth Circle art.
