On the morning of June 18th, Mitchell Pass was again crowded with pioneer wagons, period-dress pioneer interpreters, and Pony Express re-riders. Witnessing this anniversary event were about 200 visitors.
Among the special offerings to commemorate the event were a specially-constructed Scotts Bluff Pony Express Station, where the local postmaster applied a commemorative cancelation for three hours only. The station included a cooperating association bookstore carrying only Pony Express sales items. For the first time in many years, the pony riders use the period-appropriate "mochilla" instead of modern saddlebags.
