Bannack Days set for this weekendHistoric Bannack Days will be held Saturday and Sunday at Bannack State Park, near Dillon.

"Once a year, this 1860 abandoned mining town comes to life," said Angela Hurley, Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks park manager. Craftsmen and women line the streets dressed in period clothing to demonstrate long-forgotten skills such as spinning, black smithing, candle making and black powder shooting. Musicians play long forgotten tunes and a gunfight is scheduled at high noon.

Activities go from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., beginning with breakfast in the Hotel Meade from 7-9:30 a.m. Food concessions, with everything from kettle korn and lemonade to buffalo burgers and Rocky Mountain oysters, add to the festive atmosphere.

Most activities are included in the $4 per vehicle admission fee for the day. Bannack State Park is located 25 miles southwest of Dillon, just off Highway 278. Call 406-834-3413 for more information.
