Wagon Road celebration on tap


Dolores Shannon 926-4908

KOOSKIA/KAMIAH — The Elk City Wagon Road Celebration is this weekend. The parade will begin 10:30 a.m. on Saturday in Clearwater, everyone is welcome to attend, and parade entrants are still needed, and will receive a free hamburger lunch for being in the parade. This is an historic event re-creation. A trip, which now takes an hour or so, used to take one to three days depending on the time of year and the weather. Sure love that paved blacktop. July 20, Sunday, make the trip to Elk City along the Old Wagon Road, after having a breakfast at the IOOF Hall. They also have a quilt show, raffle, museum tour, a self-guided tour of the road, area and both towns.

Make this trip and take the entire family, lots of history, and some really good people have done a lot of hard work to make this possible and keep this road open. The road is now protected, somewhat, by being on the Historic Registry, but there are still factions out there who would like to see this road closed, and public opinion will go a long way in keeping this event going, this road open, and our pioneer history continuing. Turn on your car air conditioner and go, enjoy!
