If you attended the 2015 Madison County Covered Bridge Festival, you know that the Cowboys of Wild West Creations were a big hit. Reminiscent of the old North Branch Gang that roamed during much of the festival’s 47-year history, Wild West Creations are an 1880s cowboy troupe who describe themselves as “unique and 100% authentic.” Back by popular demand, you will find the Cowboys roaming the streets of Winterset again on October 14th and 15th, 2017!
