Celebrating the starting of the Santa Fe, California, Oregon Wagon Trains

Independence, Missouri has been celebrating the beginning of the Santa Fe, California, Oregon Wagon Trains. This is where the people would gather to meet up with the Wagon Trains to go West. The celebration starts on the Friday of Labor Day Weekend and ends on Monday evening. There are craft booths, LOTS of Food vendors, All kinds of carnival games, and rides. One section of Independence Square is blocked off and is set up as it was in 1824. Enjoy a few photos that I managed to take.

This couple would talk to you as they did in that time. It threw us for a few moments then caught on.

This last photo shows the difference and changes in time.

Have a great day and stay well
