On April 19, 2014, the Pawnee Bill Ranch will host its annual Easter Egg Hunt. The Egg Hunt is co-sponsored by the local Pawnee Lion’s Club and it will begin promptly at 10 a.m., signaled by Pawnee Bill firing his pistol. The egg hunt attracts hundreds of children and their families and is spread out over many acres of the historic site. Thousands of eggs will be hidden, including prize eggs containing money and vouchers for treats. Pawnee Bill started an egg hunt at his ranch more than one hundred years ago. It is in that tradition that the ranch continues to be a place where families can make memories with their children in a beautiful environment. Kevin Webb, who portrays Pawnee Bill, will offer rides on his horse after the egg hunt is over.
On April 20, 2014, the Pawnee Bill Ranch will host its annual Sunrise Service and Easter Fundraiser Breakfast. The non-denominational service begins at approximately 6:45 a.m. on Blue Hawk Peak, the highest point on the ranch grounds. The service is led by the Pawnee Ministerial Alliance and is a community-wide tradition. Immediately following the service, the Friends of the Pawnee Bill Ranch Association will serve a breakfast to raise money for ranch programs. The breakfast will consist of eggs, ham, biscuits, gravy, and a drink for $5.00.
The Friends of the Pawnee Bill Ranch Association is a 501(c) 3 organization dedicated to support of the Pawnee Bill Ranch. The ranch association helps support the Wild West Show, ranch maintenance, collections acquisition and care, and much more.
The Pawnee Bill Ranch is located on Blue Hawk Peak, one-half mile west of Pawnee on US 64.
