Kimball

DESPERADO DAYS DISCONTINUED: The long-standing tradition of Desperado Days in Kimball was recently discontinued by the town's chamber of commerce.

The chamber determined it would not be able to find 10 volunteers to help manage bulls during the bull-riding event, and other events proved difficult to organize, so the group opted to discontinue the event. It will instead focus on making Kolache Days and the Kimball Kar Klassic larger.
