When & Where
Pony Wagon Days
St Paris’ greatest claim to fame is its tradition as the center for carriage manufacturing. In the late 19th century, the Walborn and Riker Company was the most prominent pony wagon manufacturer and their carriages were considered to be of the finest quality; a fact confirmed by their display at the Chicago World’s Fair of 1893. To celebrate this heritage, the Pony Wagon Days Committee’s goals are to encourage everyone, young and old, to become more actively involved volunteers in their community, through planning, providing time and money, and participating in the positive, educational, fun community activities that surround and include the Pony Wagon Days Festival.
