The 2020 Chisholm Trail Festival in Yukon Saturday, Oct. 10 depicted the frontier days on the prairie.

The band Core Country and the Casey and Minna Biggs Duo sang country and folk tunes.
Adding to the entertainment was the Indian Territory Regulators, a living history reenactment group.


In addition to motorized food trucks, old-fashioned chuck wagons were camped out on the grounds giving attendees a glimpse of the authentic western food truck.

The end of the festival was topped off with a showing of the Apple Dumpling Gang western movie.
