Residents and visitors: Border Days awaits you



David Rauzi

Are you ready? This Saturday, July 1, kicks off Grangeville Border Days. Whether a local or a visitor, this event is for you.

Are you a newcomer to town? Check out what Grangeville has to offer: pick up a souvenir (get a cowboy hat!), take a break at the park or go down to the river. Overall, enjoy the region’s friendly atmosphere. For four days, the celebration provides a time for class reunions, family gatherings, and overall a break from the pressures of work and other bad habits.

As the county seat of Idaho County, Grangeville provides a springboard to many activities in the surrounding communities as well. Fishing, rafting, camping, hunting, mountain biking, historical tours ... hey, there’s lots to enjoy in North Central Idaho.

For those residents reading along, take a moment to show your visitor the sights or direct them along to the Grangeville Chamber of Commerce office (... that nice building on the highway next to the mammoth skeleton), or how about the museum, pool, parks or rodeo grounds.

Forget the crowds of the big city and your scowling boss. Get a room, park your RV, impose on your relatives and stay a spell. You’ll make some friends, eat some absolutely out-of-this-world food and learn how to pronounce such words as Kamiah and Doumecq, and the proper way to say creek (or is it crick?).

All this and more awaits you during Border Days.
