Satanta Celebrating 100 Years

KSCB News - October 15, 2012 8:14 am

Rain is a reason to party in the small southwest Kansas town of Satanta.

The Haskell County town postponed its fireworks celebration on July Fourth because of a two-year drought.

After 2 inches of rain fell last Friday, the fireworks will be lit this Saturday, during a party celebrating the town’s 100th anniversary.

Satanta marks Oct. 22, 1912 as its founding because it was the day the first train arrived after steel tracks for the railroad were completed.

Saturday’s party is the culmination of a year of celebrations.
