Chadron Fur Trade Days Carnival Arrives

The first true signs that Chadron’s Fur Trade Days celebration is almost here came Tuesday when the first trucks from Mac’s Carnival arrived and most of the 100 and 200 blocks of Bordeaux Street were blocked off.

Fur Trade Days has vouchers for unlimited ride wristbands on sale for $20, a savings of $5 from the price at the carnival.

Board member Miles Bannan says it’s a good deal for both the buyers and for Fur Trade Days.

Carnival hours are 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Thursday night and 5 p.m. to midnight Friday and Saturday.

Bannan says the wristbands can be used for five hours any of the nights.
