Benson Mule Days is happening on Saturday, September 22, 2011 and it sounds like a lot of fun! This town is also home to a really awesome Christmas light display (more on that later).
This festival, which draws 60-70,000 people, is filled with family fun and activities for everyone young and old. The weekend is packed with rodeos, a mule pulling contest, arts and crafts, vendors, street dances, carnival rides, camping, parades, bluegrass shows and more.
For more information, they just created a website with a schedule of events, parking information, and a ton of other stuff.
