Daly Days Crowd Fills Downtown Hamilton

There were smiles all around Saturday in day two of Daly Days in Hamilton.

Many folks treated themselves to blueberry pancakes and sausage for $5 from the Bitterroot Kiwanis Club, then an hour of free Zumba lessons provided an opposite activity.

The Soroptimists’ annual Weiner Dog Races brought out the biggest crowd on Main Street with Diana Gifford’s dachshund “Boomer” winning its heat and then the championship matchup. The short course was surrounded by hay bales and a huge crowd (see photo).

The day was bright and temperatures reached into the 80s as people enjoyed the vendors’ displays and the huge Bitterrodders’ Car Show, which included “creeper races” and great looking classic and tricked out cars and trucks.

The Bitterroot Arts Guild took over Legion Park with their exhibits as the Hamilton Farmers Market got underway.

At 3 p.m. the Chamber of Commerce’s Bitterroot Brewfest topped off the day with over 40 different microbrews on tap and three musical groups.

At the Daly Mansion, antique cars and carriages were on display, along with a chuck wagon and a special concert from Belinda Gale.

Sunday, the Daly Mansion will continue having self-guided tours of the building. From noon until 3 p.m. in the Trophy Room, the silent films of Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton will be shown, with live piano accompaniment by Joan Roe.
