Frontier Days kicks off Friday


It’s once again time for Frontier Days in Whitehall.

The popular annual event will take place Friday, July 29 and Saturday, July 30.

The event will kick off Friday at 11 a.m. with the annual Rocky Mountain Bank customer appreciation barbecue, and will conclude with the Street Dance Saturday at 9 p.m.

Whitehall Chamber Executive Coordinator Casey Chase said people look forward to the event all summer and it’s a historic way for people to get together, visit, and have a great time.

Chase said the Chamber puts in a lot of work for the event and it is great for local businesses, with some of them having their busiest weekends of the year.

The two days will be packed full of action with popular events like the World Class Bucking Horse Association Futurity, Stick Horse Horse Rodeo, Parade, Bill Baycroft Memorial Rod Run and Museum Gab Fest.

This year will also include two new events with a baseball camp and dodgeball tournament set for Saturday.
