Many came to visit our small town, Abilene, KS last weekend to enjoy the “wildest and woolliest weekend since 1867”. Chisholm Trails: Trails, Rails & Tales, takes place every year throughout the Labor Day weekend. During the Chisholm Trail there are several shows that take place, along with Native American demonstrations, and a Buckaroo camp led by several students and athletes from Abilene High School.  The Chisholm Trail Auto hosted their annual car show on Saturday.  Behind their store there was a whole road filled with antique cars and people walking down the road taking pictures and observing the very unique cars that some may see once in their lifetime.  On the following day, I went down into Old Abilene Town where there were several events going on for all age group.  They had a buckaroo camp held for kids ages 4-12, with several volunteers from Abilene High School to help out. The kids could do things from barrel racing to sack racing, fast draw, and so much more. As I was walking around, I found many different stores with historical items and native speakers talking to people about the history behind their culture. The community had the opportunity to go on carriage rides, climb rock walls. They had plenty of food stands, and many concerts for the community to listen in. Long story short, the Chisholm Trail is pretty unique, and if you missed out this year do not worry, it will be back next year!
