The annual Clark Days celebration is Saturday and Sunday at Pompeys Pillar National Monument east of Billings.

Activities begin Saturday afternoon and run through Sunday. The theme is “Our Agricultural Heritage.” Speakers, presenters, musicians and dancers will tell the various farming and ranching stories of the area. As part of this special event, a cowboy poetry session will be held Saturday from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

“We are really excited to celebrate the agricultural history of Pompeys Pillar as well as the Huntley Project area,” said monument manager Jeff Kitchens. “The weekend will be mixed with fun activities and informative presentations for everyone.”

A partner of the weekend’s activities is the Northern International Livestock Exposition, which will help sponsor a cattle drive and cowboy camp Saturday.
