Bow Days!

This weekend we were part of Bow Days!!

Bow Days are the annual celebration of the founding of our town.  Medicine Bow is now 101 years old!  On Friday we had a community BBQ; Saturday was packed with a parade, games, and a street dance; and Saturday and Sunday was the Fast Draw Competition.  Needless to say we have been busy!

On Thursday I did all of the shopping for the BBQ.  Then on Friday I baked fresh rhubarb coffee cakes, got everything prepped and set up for the BBQ, and helped with the event itself.  Saturday early in the morning we helped get the games set up.  Then my husband and I were both in the parade.  He rode as Mayor and I drove a firetruck!  After that we whipped tons of whipped cream and I manned the booth to cream the Mayor!  A good old fashioned pie throw to raise money for the volunteer fire departments 4th of July fireworks.  We cleaned up after the games and pies then we went home and cleaned up to head to the street dance.  A local live band played and a good time was had by all.  Sunday we went off to church then headed over to watch some of the Fast Draw.  Now we are trying to recuperate some before the madness begins again next week...
