(Lander, Wyo.) – The traditional post parade Buffalo Barbecue by the Rotary Club of Lander drew just under 1,400 hungry Independence Day revelers to Lander City Park Friday afternoon. Entertained by singer/songwriter Steve Gora, the crowd began arriving just after 11 a.m. to enjoy locally raised buffalo smoked bratwurst and hamburgers plus hot dogs and sauerkraut, jacima cole slaw, condiments and soft drinks.
