BILLINGS - Now here's something you don't see every day in Billings. Cattle being driven through town on the main parade route.
It was all part of the celebration the NILE Lou Taubert Ranch Outfitters Cattle Drive & Parade.
"It something we are extremely excited about and have been wanting to do for several years," says Justin Mills, NILE General Manager.
The parade featured a Cattle Drive made up of fifty head of steers complete with a trail boss, outriders, chuck wagon, and bunk wagon.
"We've been working with Chas Weldon of the Yellowstone County Museum in creating an authentic Cattle Drive as part of the parade," says Mills."This is part of Billings's heritage and we are proud to provide this kind of opportunity in which we can honor our past."
The parade was a motor-less parade, which means all entries will riding horses or other ride-able animals, in horse drawn wagons, or walking.
Other activities that will take place that day will be a Community Chuck Wagon Barbecue in the Courtyard at MetraPark that will be held from 11:45-1:30.
