Skirt lengths rise and fall, seasons change, towns evolve as do their citizens….but as long as traditions are continually passed down somethings will remain the same.
A love for history, a yearning for community and a once a year pass to clown around, build stories on wheels and indulge in flying tootsie rolls keeps this 80 year Pioneer Day tradition going.
Please come and celebrate the 80th Annual Pioneer Days where the old, young, long timers and new comers all join together for a day of fun and community enjoyment.
This year the 2nd Annual Pioneer Day Car Show will once again be included in this years lineup along with usual royalty coronation, parade, chuck wagon dinner and street games.
