If you’re looking for some local fun today, just head east on I-80 for a 30 minute drive, to a town, that’s ready to welcome you to the celebration of “Burns Day”  THIS Saturday!

Already a slew of events going on as we speak, including a pancake breakfast, and later in the day, the “Antique Tractor Pull,” craft show, a kids parade followed by the main parade, live entertainment, petting zoo, even bingo games.

This annual celebration honors this quaint little town approximately 26 miles east of Cheyenne, that was originally established by Lutheran German immigrants, who named the town Luther in 1907 as German settlers paid honor to Martin Luther.  The town later changed its name to Burns on February 10th, 1910.

Burns is a small town of approximately 301 people, but this community has much to offer in the way of “small town charm and friendliness,” and you’ll find lots of that in this small town celebration.  Take a look some of the events going on THIS Saturday, June 7th:

Pancake Breakfast (from 7 a.m. through the morning)

Craft Show-9 a.m.
