Of course, enjoy plenty of cow chip throwing and other themed activities like the famous Wild West Shootout.

The cow chip throwing tournament celebrates the early traditions of frontier pioneers in Oklahoma.  Bitter winters in the open plains found these early settlers in desperate need of fuel.  With miles and miles of grass, no fuel was available.  The Oklahoma buffalo hunters found that dried buffalo chips could be burned with adequate results.  By the time the settlers came, however, most of the buffalo were gone.  Therefore, the settlers had to rely on cow chips for fuel and heat.  When dry, the chips emitted no odor, gave a clear bright flame, burned with intense heat and produced no soot.

In the fall of each year, early settlers would take their wagons to the pastures to load up cow chips for the winter.  With the whole family along, it became a sport as to who could throw the chips into the wagon with the most accuracy.  So, come to the Cimarron Territorial Celebration and Cow Chip Throwing Contest and see this unique event, which has not only garnered national attention, but keeps a pioneer tradition alive.

I don't think a monkey riding a dog has anything to do with what this festival celebrates. Please do not exploit primates during this celebration.
