Dillon History Days Kicks Off With A Few Hiccups

Dillon History Days is on their third year of providing community minded activities to the people of Beaverhead County as well as those passing through, today the events kicked off with an open house at the PIMA Medical Institute located on Poindexter street.



A Teddy Bear Picnic was held at Jaycee Park, despite having to be cut short due to sprinkler line testing and project workers stating the task needed to be completed and they couldn't wait for the event to finish.


The Horse Power Roundup being held at the Depot Park started at 5 p.m. tonight along with the Beat The Heat car smash.



Phillip Page will be singing his cowboy songs at the Jaycee Park, and starting at 8 p.m. you can put on your boots head down to the Elks Lodge and get your country line dancing on. If cornhole is your thing the Tap House right across the street will be hosting a tournament.


If you missed todays activities they will start again tomorrow at 10 a.m. on Bannack street with vendors. The vendors had to be moved from Idaho St to Bannack due to the promises made by both the city and contracting crews not living up to them and having the street ready. Also a huge shout out to Mark Boka for taking matters into his own hands and watering down the streets to keep dust at a minimum. Watching people come together to make this event successful is what will help keep it coming back year after year and giving the Dillon Community something to look forward to in July.


We will have a full picture gallery up of tomorrows activities.



Take out your frustrations with the Beat the Heat car
