A McKinleyville tradition since 1968, this celebration of those brave souls who made up the Wild West mail delivery system includes a chili cook-off, firemen’s muster, Western dance and Saturday’s 11 a.m. parade down Central Avenue that rolls right into the big festival in Pierson Park.
On Saturday & Sunday there’s competitive games on horseback, part of the Gymkhana Buckle Series, at the Kjer Road arena. Don’t miss the barrel race contest. Other family-friendly fun includes an opening mixer, live music, pancake breakfast and arts and crafts and food vendors.
