CHISHOLM TRAIL DAY: Sunday, November 11
An old-fashioned, family fun festival on Sunday, Nov.11, will celebrate the famous Chisholm Trail that once crossed the land where Pioneer Farms is now located.
A variety of activities for children of all ages will be featured, including historical demonstrations, new exhibits, live music and more. Hands-on activities will allow you to survey and walk a section of the real Chisholm Trail the trail, just as the pioneers once did. Make-And-Take crafts will be offered for a additional fee. Corn-husking and other 1800s activities will keep kids of all ages engaged.
Hear a special musical show about the Chisholm Trail presented by cowboy balladeer Jesse White at 11:15 a.m., and again during the afternoon. And hear songs from the 1800s played on real period instruments by talented instrumentalist Tom Berghan. Both shows not to be missed.
Get a photo opportunity with a real Longhorn cow, and ride a horse-drawn wagon just like the cattle drovers did along the Old Chisholm Trail. Some five million head of cattle were moved up the Chisholm Trail from Texas to Kansas between 1867 and 1871.
Active military members and veterans get free admission, in honor of World War I Armistice Day on Sunday.
Regular admission. Come one, come all! Gates open at 10 a.m. and will close at 5 p.m.
