Jun 30, 2013 - StaffFremont County was anticipating the annual renewal of Lander Pioneer Days festivities as the Fourth of July neared in 1967, with Diana Brodie and Charlotte Peery of Lander reigning as Pioneer Days Queen and Attendant.
Kicking off the celebration was the Rock Crushers Ball and accompanying fireworks display on July 1.
The Lander Old Timers Rodeo followed on July 3, featuring rodeo clown and stunt bull rider Tom Lucia of Arizona. The rodeo staged all the typical professional events, along with chair traces and a wild horse race.
As usual, crowds bordered Lander's Main Street on Independence Day as the Pageant of the Old West Parade proceeded from "the high school to the hill."
