To celebrate the history of the area, Overbrook Pride is sponsoring the sixth annual Santa Fe Trail Festival on Sept. 15 at the Overbrook Fairgrounds.
The festival will begin with a 5K race, a one-mile fun run, biscuits and gravy and the start of the chili cook-off at 8 a.m. Other events scheduled throughout the day include Santa Fe Trail history lessons, bingo, a petting zoo, horse-drawn wagon rides, live entertainment and historical demonstrations.
Demonstrations will include spinning, rope-making and corn-grinding.
Musical performances will be at the festival as well. Dan Rukes is scheduled for 1 p.m., and The Tone Brothers will perform in the Saloon at 6:30 p.m.
