The Trails & Rails sponsored Wagons ‘West Celebration’ and ‘Buffalo County Stampede’ helps people understand and appreciate the pioneers who settled this area. The event features pioneer music, exhibitors and hands-on family activities. One of the goals of the celebration is to interpret the lives of the pioneers through music. For a group of people leading a simple life, just having a fiddle was about the same as having an orchestra.
