About This Activity

This year's Buffalo Bill Days celebration marks its 31st year!

 Why is it called Buffalo Bill Days? In 1900, the first of Buffalo Bill's Wild West Shows were performed in Lanesboro, comprised of 6 Indians (2 Indian maidens), 2 white men (Buffalo Bill and White Beaver) and Mr. Man.

 The annual celebration held the first weekend in August includes a firefighters' street dance that "Trouble Shooter" plays, softball tournaments, volleyball tournaments, 5K/1Mile run, kids games, petting zoo and pony rides, a public dance at the beer/brat tent with "Next 2 Nothing" playing, fireworks, plays at the Commonweal Theater, a grand parade and much, much more!

 Thank you for your support and helping us give back to our community. Hope to see you there!
