Pony Express: This is the 151st anniversary of the Pony Express, and they will be back doing remounts and giving rides to the kids.

Mormon Battalion: Will be shooting their canon off again. They have a great display of 1850's stuff and hands-on demonstrations for the kids. They said that they will add some new things to their displays and demonstrations.

Blue Canyon Gang: This bunch of guys and gals is the orneriest gang on the western slope. If you gals are having a hard time getting your man to pop the question, the Blue Canyon Gang can arrange for a "Shotgun Weddin." Be careful - there will be another gang in town, and they don't get along, so you can expect a shoot out or two.

Gold Panning: Russ will be back showing the kids how to "strike it rich." Russ said that all of the rain this year washed down a lot of color. You could consider a trip to Clarksville Day an investment.
