Carriage Driving begins at 10 am with a parade through Railroad Town scheduled at 1 pm. In between there will be class offerings and competitions including:

-Cones Course
-Rail Challenge
-Stop and Go
-Speed Ball
-Barrels
-Keyhole

There will also be awards for best entry in the Railroad Town parade and best hat. The awards presentation will follow the Dog Class event in the field to the south of Railroad Town.

The residents of Railroad Town will be out to greet the horses and their owners and there will be plenty of hands on, historic fun throughout the day. You can also see our summer exhibit "Pioneer Medicine: Physicians on the Platte" in the Stuhr Building.

Admission is $10 for members, $8 for children and free for Stuhr Museum members. For more information give us a call at (308) 385-516.
