Starting in 2005 and each year since, a group of chuckwagon enthusiasts get together on the banks of the Llano River and go back in time to an era when the west was settled. Each wagon cooks and serves a meal of chicken fried steak, potatoes, beans, bread, and a dessert. Enthusiasts use traditional cooking methods from that era, wear traditional dress, and experience neighborly fun as they compete for prizes in a number of categories.
