On Friday the festivities kicked off with a reenactment of the Hashknife Pony Express where riders brave weather, terrain and more obstacles on a 200-mile trek from Holbrook, Arizona to Scottsdale.
Members of the Navajo County Sheriff’s Posse pick up mail along the way and camp overnight in towns like Heber, Pine and Strawberry to deliver over 1,000 letters to the main post office in Old Town Scottsdale just like they did in the Old West.
Bringing up the end of the parade was Walter The Bus. An amazing contraption built with lots of love and artistic endeavor. I really recommend that you visit his website at www.walterthebus.com and find out more about him.
