The city of Lanesboro had something for everyone during the 30th annual Buffalo Bill Days which was held August 1, 2, and 3, 2014.

Officially beginning the celebration with the opening of the Beer & Brat tent on Friday afternoon at 4 p.m. people started streaming in to grab a brat and a cold one as they listened to DJ Chase.

The softball tournament began Friday evening with teams playing over the entire three days in not only Lanesboro but Fountain and Peterson as well. Teams came from near and far to participate not only in the tournament but also enjoyed other activities around town.

Commonweal Theatre provided a nice evening out for many with their production of “Arsenic and Old Lace” and Trouble Shooter ended the festivities on Friday night with a street dance in front of the Fire Hall.

Softball continued on Saturday morning and the volleyball and bean bag tournaments began. Teams enjoyed the beautiful weather and the companionship of teammates while getting some exercise at the same time. A golf tournament also took place in which participants could play any of the three days of Buffalo Bill Days.

The winners of the Volleyball Tournament were the Bumping Uglies team in the upper division and team Spike It took the lower division.

The “Buffalo Roam” took place on Saturday which was a fun run/walk for all ages and had many groups of friends and family walking or running together while talking and laughing at the same time.

The Market Place and Farmer’s Market opened Saturday to many visitors and residents choosing farm fresh vegetables and other useful items at the many vendor booths. Deb Augustin, of Austin, Minn. works at Mayo Clinic during the week and is a vendor each year at Buffalo Bill Days, dressing in costume, selling purses and other items stating it is her weekend fun to be a vendor.

Bingo was the perfect way to pass the time in Sylvan Park while enjoying the music of the “Root River Jam Band” followed by the “Arnold Bradley Band” who played in the gazebo.

An additional way to spend time in the park was sampling the many types of food offered some of which included the Red Barn Kitchen serving hot roast beef, ham and cheese, and smoked meatloaf. Hog Wild Wings served not only wings but also cheese curds, deep fried pickles, and nacho fries. R Four Meats offered turkey drumsticks, sloppy joes, .....
