  • The parade was one of the largest in the 49-year history of the annual Lewis and Clark Trail Days in downtown Buckner over the weekend.
    Needless to say, the event was a success, as always, said co-organizer Theresa Runyon.
    The parade had more than 50 entries, a combination of old-fashioned tractors and antique cars.
    “It was long and good,” Runyon said. “It went real well.
    The parade started at Heisler Park and went to downtown.
    The Eastern Jackson County event featured booths where people sold arts and crafts and a variety of food.
    The event on Friday and Saturday also featured two bands, Bandana and the Misty River Band, that played country and rock music.
    “We had a fantastic one,” she said of the entire event.
    The Lewis and Clark Trail Days committee will be holding a “mud run” event to raise money for upgrades for the fall festival. A mud run was held in early August and the second event will be held in early October.
    Money raised will go toward upgrading the electrical infrastructure that powers all the booths and carnival area, Runyon said.
