The legend is that when Hamilton’s Main Street was laid out, Marcus Daly said it should be wide enough that you could turn around a horse-drawn wagon in the street.

Well, the horses are coming back to Main Street Friday afternoon with the Glory Days Parade. The mainly horse event will start at the Ravalli County Fairgrounds, with line-up by 2:45pm. At 3pm, the parade will move across US 93 on Adirondac Avenue, then over to Main Street, where they’ll head back toward US 93, but turn on North Second, completing the loop at Adirondac and back to the fairgrounds.

That evening, the Senior Pro Rodeo will dominate the Ravalli County Fairgrounds arena, with ropin,’ ridin’ and good ole downhome rodeo fun, including kids categories in mutton-busting and a section of Montana Miniature Bull Riding. The Bitterroot Mountettes womens drill team will perform both Friday and Saturday evenings, with action starting at 7pm. The gates open early for special “Behind the Chutes” tours, where spectators can see walk through the “nerve-center” of the rodeo and see how things are done. Those tours are available at the fairgrounds office for $25 each; call 406-363-3411.

Then, Saturday, the Ravalli County Museum gets into the act with Afternoon of Cowboy Music and Poetry. The annual event starts at 2pm with cowboy poets, some yodeling and great guitar pickin’. Included will be Doug Hogan, Charla Bauman, Ellie Nuno, Shad Peace, Larry Wade, Roy Gruss, Albert Douglas and Kenny and Laurie Watson.

Here are tickets and info at the Fair Website
