(Neb.)-Chadron State Park Celebrates Its 91st Anniversary This Weekend

By: Roxie Graham-Marski Posted at: 06/15/2012 05:21 PM

(CHADRON)-Chadron State Park is celebrating its 91st birthday this weekend with activities for the entire family. Park events are scheduled for Saturday from 8:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m.
The day will feature an antique tractor show, parade, and pull. There will also be free paddle boat rides and races, an air house and jeep rides. The park pool, which recently underwent restoration, will be open as well.
Buffalo sloppy joes will be offered for 91 cents for those working up an appetite by participating in events such as archery, bouncey horse races, weaving or trail rides. There will also be a live band and free watermelon. Although many of the activities are free of charge, a park permit is required for entry.
Chadron State Park is located nine miles south of Chadron on U.S. 385. At an elevation of nearly 5,000 feet, the 972 acre park lies in the heart of the Nebraska National Forest. There are 22 two bedroom, housekeeping cabins available from mid-April to mid-November, plus a group camp/conference facility. The park also boasts a modern campground with 70 pads and 30 amp electrical hookups.
