Fur trader–era rendezvous re-enactment taking place near Cairo

CAIRO — On the edge of the Sandhills, along the banks of the Loup River, outside Cairo, the High Plains Regional Rendezvous is taking place this week. The weeklong event recreates a pre-1840 rendezvous. All camps, accoutrements, clothing and trade goods are of that era of American history from 1820 through 1840, when the fur trade flourished. After months in the wilderness, fur traders would gather in large camps where they would sell or trade their furs that were trapped during the winter.
