LEWISBURG — Some communities have large painted horses, others have cows or donkeys. Union County will soon have buffalo!
It’s part of the county’s bicentennial celebration.
Each of the 14 municipalities was given a fiberglass buffalo to decorate and put on display. There’s also one to represent Union County as a whole.
We found that one being painted at the county government building.
Lewisburg artist Karen Ross has been working on it all week.
“Lighter hair and a darker body and light-colored horns. We have a couple other touches to add to it to surprise people later on,” Ross said.
At the end of October, all of the buffalo will be displayed outside the campus theater in Lewisburg.
People will be able to vote on which one they like the best.
