But the spectacle of all 1,300 bison pounding over the ridge on a bright autumn day is an experience you will never, ever forget. The sight of the brown mass of bodies moving across the golden grass takes your breath away. The sound of 5,000 hooves pounding the ground is something you feel more than hear.
And with 14,000 spectators, the Buffalo Roundup has a festival feel to it. In fact, the park hosts an Arts Festival on the following weekend. This year’s roundup and festival are set for Sept. 25-27.
