The Chamber of Commerce hosted the Annual Buffalo Stampede Saturday September 15. It was an amazing success. Preparations have been in the making for months. Many improvements have been made in Harriman Park in planning for the Stampede through a combined effort of The City of Buffalo, The Chamber of Commerce, BEDC, and generous donations of many businesses and individuals.

Saturday started with a parade a 9:00am. It was one of the largest parades in recent history. Trophies were given in six catagories. The winners were: Non-Business Floats: 1st place, The Buffalo Stampede Beauty Pageant designed by Mandy Pate and Sherry Gloor, 2nd place Buffalo Junior High Cheerleaders, and 3rd place Grace Tabernacle. Business Floats: Carrie's Salon and Spa. ATV'S: 1st place Stitches and Lil' Britches by Dusty Payne, 2nd place Buffalo Volunteer Fire Dept., 3rd place Darren's Detailing. Vehicles: 1st place Troy Cox in his antique tractor, 2nd place Sam Mccormick in his antique T-Bird, 3rd place Tommy Roberson in his 1930 Model A. Horses: 1st place Gene Scott, 2nd place Wyatt Looney, 3rd place Juan. Special Groups: 1st place Beaumont Shriners on their mini motorcycles, 2nd place Bison Belles, 3rd place Buffalo School Band. Best Of Show: Prime Time Express Mounted Drill Team from Limestone County. Catch them later this year in the Rose Bowl Parade.

At 11:00am a trophy was awarded to the Cheer-Off winner Buffalo Junior High Cheerleaders. This is something new that was added to the Stampede this year.

Another new event added this year was a Wing Eating Contest. It was an invitation event with men from local businesses, churches, and school. It was an entertaining and popular part of the Stampede. Participants were Jim Davis, Chad Wood, Jeff Ryder, Tommy Davis, Lacy Freeman, Taylor Mcgill, Tim Ezell, Gene Pruitt, Justin Foster, Danny Reeder, and Buffalo Police Chief Lance Pavelka. The event was sponsored by our local Pizza Hut owned by Carter Enterprises. After lots of messy faces and hands were had, the over whelming winner by a long stretch was Jim Davis. He earned a giant chicken trophy and bragging rights for one year.

A Car Show was held at 11:00am with about 40 entries. Trophies were awarded in many catorgories. Many beautiful vehicles and motorcycles were entered. Trophies were presented at 1:00pm.
At 1:00pm the Tri County Horse Shoe Association presented their trophies to the winners of the tournament they hosted this weekend.

An auction started at about 1:15. A great variety of items were up for bid. All items were purchased or donated from local businesses. It was a fantastic success.

A dance was held from 6:30 until 12:30 with local bands Pushwater and Kraz'd Kountry playing. A huge crowd attending and a great time was had by all. During the dance at 11:00pm the raffle winners were drawn. The winner of the lawn mower and trailer was Margo Carmichael of Buffalo. The winner of the $1000.00 shopping spree was Dustin Boullion.

The Chamber hopes everyone had a good time. It was a lot of hard work, but worth it.
