Come To the Burro Races
Be sure and see the Third Leg of the Triple Crown Burro Race. Get out of the way as over 40 burros and their runners take off down East Main Street, across the Arkansas River bridge and race up the Midland Trail for an 11 mile race. See the Shootout at the Lariat Saloon and watch the Toilet Seat Races as you wait for the burro racers return.
