Bean Day 2015

105 years ago a free meal of beans was cooked over fires in wash boilers for over a thousand hungry stomachs – for everyone who attend the Harvest Jubilee – a celebration for villagers, farmers, weavers, sheepherders, cowboys, ranch hands, railroad workers and travelers.  For 105 years it has been called Bean Day, a tradition synonymous with the village.  You are invited to Wagon Mound Labor Day weekend for the annual fiesta.  Join villagers cleaning dried pinto beans at the firehouse Friday evening September 4th.  A service honoring our military servicemen and women, veterans and their families will be held Saturday morning at the corner memorial park.  Other events are dances, the car show, rodeo, mud bog, vendors and always a two way parade on Railroad Avenue Monday morning followed by a free meal of beans and bbq beef cooked overnight in deep pits of red hot charcoal, coleslaw and tortilla for everyone.  Sections of the north adobe wall of 705 have moved off the bond beam.  These sections are roped off.   We shall be open for guests to see the challenge, enjoy the art and the company of village guests.
