Kansas Cattle Drive moving to Pretty Prairie next year
PRETTY PRAIRIE, Kan. (AP) — The annual Kansas Cattle Drive in Reno County is moving to Pretty Prairie next year.
The drive, which draws thousands of people, will be held Feb. 16.
The Hutchinson News reports this will be the fourth annual Kansas Cattle Drive in the county, and the first one held outside Buhler.
The drive drew about 600 people its first year but that grew to between 5,000 and 6,000 people last year.
Reno County Extension agent Darren Busick, who is chief organizer of the event, says organizers always planned to move the event around Reno County. He says Pretty Prairie and three communities outside Reno County, wanted to host this year’s drive.
The drive includes livestock, vendors, guest speakers, and activities for children.
