Buffalo Bill Days - A Rootin’ Tootin’ Good Time!

Well folks, get those cowboy boots out of the closet and saddle up because this weekend is Buffalo Bill Days in Lanesboro, Minn., starting on August 1-3! According to the committee that organized this western-themed celebration, the community has been celebrating this annually for 28 years. How did it all begin, you may ask? For starters, it used to be a fundraiser for the “Swim and Race” program. Still to this day, many groups in the community take this time as an opportunity to fundraise (such as working shifts at the Beer and Brat tent or various Kids Games). At the time the celebration was referred to as “Good ‘Ole Days” but, interestingly enough, Lanesboro changed the name of the celebration to “Buffalo Bill Days” because Buffalo Bill Cody began the “Wild West Show” in Lanesboro!

The committee informed that there will be many fun things to do this weekend. “There is something to do for the WHOLE family!” The Sylvan Park will be hosting Kids Games on Saturday and Sunday. Some of the main attractions are the Fireworks and the Grand Parade that a person of any age will enjoy. Fireworks start at 9:45 p.m. on Saturday (if it rains, it will be at the same time on Sunday) and the Grand Parade is Sunday at 1:30 p.m. If dancing and listening to live groups is more your scene, you can head into town for the Fireman’s Street Dance, which will feature the band “Trouble Shooter” on Friday night starting at 8 p.m., located at the Fire Hall. Another band will be performing at the parking lot of the Community Center called “Next 2 Nothing” on Saturday night at 8:00 p.m. Sylvan Park will still host the Market Place for people to buy produce, goods and treats.

A returning group this year, and a popular group to be seen, will be the Cannon Old West Society. They are “wild west” actors who will be putting on three performances: robbing the bank on Saturday at 10 a.m., a High Noon shoot-out and at 2 p.m. will be a showdown between good guys and bad guys at the Beer and Brat tent. The committee mentioned there will be three sport tournaments during the weekend. Softball will start on Friday night at 7 p.m., Saturday morning volleyball and bean bags will be hosted at the Fire Hall. People can sign up at 11 a.m. for the bean bag tournament, which will start at noon.
