30th Annual Buffalo Bill Days coming soon


Fri, Jul 18th, 2014
Posted in Lanesboro Features

Buffalo Bill Days in Lanesboro, Minn. is fast approaching and this year’s celebration is a special one being that this year marks the 30th year that Lanesboro has hosted the celebration. The reason behind the name of the event is due to the fact that in 1900 the first Buffalo Bill’s Wild West shows were performed in Lanesboro, according to the city’s website, www.lanesboro-mn.gov. That show consisted of six Indians (two Iron Maidens), two white men (Buffalo Bill and White Beaver), and a Mr. Man.

The celebration takes place each year during the first full weekend in August which lands Buffalo Bill Days this year on August 1, 2, and 3. Traditional Buffalo Bill Days activities will take place this year but also two new events have been added to enhance the fun of the weekend including a “Buffalo Roam” and the “Jim Busta Band” being included in this year’s schedule of events.

Grand Marshals for this year are lifelong residents of Lanesboro, Duane and Angel Bakke, who were honored to accept the prestigious title of Grand Marshals and will proudly ride in the Buffalo Bill Days Grand Parade on Sunday, August 3, 2014.

The official start of Buffalo Bill Days will be at 4 p.m. on Friday, August 1 with the opening of the Beer & Brat tent for the weekend and music with DJ Chase who is sure to get the weekend kicked off with good tunes and a great time.

At 7 p.m. the Softball Tournament begins with fans gathering at the softball field to cheer on their favorite teams and players. The Commonweal Theatre will be performing “Arsenic and Old Lace” at 7:30 p.m., which is only one of the productions by the Commonweal during the weekend.

One highlight during the weekend, the Street Dance, will start at 8:30 p.m. Friday evening in front of the Lanesboro Fire Hall with the band “Trouble Shooter” performing. For those who celebrate a little too much over the weekend R & M Amish Tours will be providing Sober Shuttle Rides from 6 p.m. until 3 a.m. Friday and Saturday nights to get everyone home safely. The phone number for the Sober Shuttle rides is (507) 467-2128.

Not only does the Softball Tournament continue on Saturday, August 2 but the Volleyball Tournament also gets underway which brings many teams to the nets near the Beer & Brat Tent with a large crowd always watching the teams go head to head and as if .....
