How about a boomer road trip in a Conestoga wagon? That’s how the pioneers arrived in Stevensville—Montana’s first settlement and our new home town.
We’ll be celebrating pioneer culture with our neighbors this weekend at Western Heritage Days. The three-day event includes a chuck wagon contest, rummage sale, barnyard games and a pony rodeo (the plastic variety) for the little ones. We’ll be dining like a pioneer at the chuck wagon lunch before watching the drummers and dancers at the Salish cultural presentation.
And, like most of the small town festivals in the Bitterroot Valley of Montana, there will be a parade. You’ll find us lined up on the sidewalk with the rest of the crowd watching the procession move down Main Street. But the fun doesn’t stop there. Alan and I are looking forward to the street dance and beer garden on Saturday night.
