The Buffalo Bill Birthday Ball, a charity event organized by the Knights of Columbus, takes place on the nearest Saturday to Buffalo Bill’s actual birthdate. So in 2017, that’s February 25 for dancing, dinner, live and silent auctions and turn-of-the-century dress at the ball.  The council's major fundraiser, the Buffalo Bill Birthday Ball is a rip-snorting cowboy extravaganza of music, dancing, prime rib dinner, gun raffle, silent and live auctions, and Wild West entertainment to which the entire adult community is invited.  The event is held annually on the Saturday nearest Col.
