I Love Mule

1st week in April for over 170 years

the sign as you come into town

Since 1840, farmers and mule breeders came here to breed and trade mules and cattle. Now, it a four day festival with food, a parade, mule pulls, best in show mules and regional music.

There are many mules to see. There are mules in the barn, mules being ridden, and mules being shown.

We got there for the 2100 lb or less team mule pull. We watched the teams one by one get eliminated with the pounds to be pulled. This winning team pulled 6000 lbs before they could pull no more. These are truly strong animals. Gentle giants.
