Rain washed out fun event

Aug 5, 2014 - Karen Peden, Riverton


In this area we take all the rain we can get and are grateful for it. I do wish the rainstorm on Friday, July 11, would have waited a few hours. The rain washed out "Music on the River Walk" along the rails to trails recreation path.

Eleven musicians and musical groups had been scheduled, including first-time presenters Double Trouble, Sundowners, the Riverton High School Choir, Steve Gora and Tim Ervin.

Other new presenters were Gordon Bush Blacksmith Shop, the Riverton Museum, and cowboy poets Kent Stockton and Jack Schmidt. The Wind River Mountain Man exhibit takes hours to set up and take down.

I extend my greatest appreciation to those who dedicated the evening for everyone's enjoyment and to the businesses who donated water, space and supplies. I am grateful for all those who love to come and enjoy the River Walk fun. We hope to see you next year.
