Corral Dust: Border Days news from the Ole' Cowpoke

— Cash and Carry Marketplace has been handing out popsicles following the Border Days Kiddies Parade for 30 years now. That’s roughly 250 popsicles a year, making approximately 7,500 popsicles throughout the years! Wow!

The Kiddies Parade this year is set for Wednesday, July 4, 1 p.m. As usual, popsicles will await kids at the end of the route, at Cash and Carry.

New to Art in the Park this year will be the Grangeville Church of the Nazarene’s game and carnival booth. This will be held Wednesday, July 4, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., at Pioneer Park. Kids and young people are invited to stop by and play games and win prizes for free.

Did you hear Border Days Queen Micaela Farris had her tonsils and adenoids taken out last week? She’s doing better, but it’s a bit of a rough, sore recovery. We know she will be back in the saddle for Border Days.

Check out the special Free Press Border Days section this week where you can find all the Border Days news including stories on our grand marshal, royalty and several of the town’s events, including goings-on at the museum, Cowboy Breakfast and a list of the Triple Bar Drill Team members. Also, the Border Days schedule will be included on a half-sheet slick little piece of paper. Just right for taking with you to all the events next week. Thanks to some of the major Border Days sponsors: Gortsema Motors, Asker’s Harvest Foods and Les Schwab.

Look for the Elks fireworks trailer at Asker’s parking lot. Lots of goodies for your family Fourth. Also, remember to donate to the Grangeville Fireworks Fund during each parade so the Grangeville Volunteer Fire Department can continue to put on the awesome show they do each year. It’s set for Wednesday, July 4, 10 p.m., at the Grangeville High School football field.

Don’t forget, if you want to see some good rodeo events but maybe don’t have the money or you’re busy at regular rodeo time, there’s always slack. There’s still some great events to see and, best of all, it’s free. Come on out Thursday, July 5, 10 a.m., at the Border Days Arena for slack rodeo.

We haven’t talked about the music, but remember there is live music after the rodeos on July 5 and 6: Marcos Dominguez and American Bonfire will immediately follow the July 5 rodeo and Grangeville’s own Vintage Youth will follow the July 6 rodeo.

Also, don’t forget, this Thursday night, June 28, at the arena will be the royalty tryouts for 2019.
