Anticipation for the annual Lockeford Picnic in May 1915 had been building for more than a month.
"Those who attend the 16th annual Lockeford picnic on the 12th of next month will be enabled to see one of the finest bronco busting outfits that has ever shown in this state," reported the Lodi Sentinel on April 15, 1915.
