Stevensville gears up for Western Heritage Days


STEVENSVILLE, Mont. - Look for crowds in Stevensville June 21 and 22. Montana's oldest permanent settlement is celebrating Western Heritage Days.

Look for barnyard games Friday night and a parade Saturday, plus wagon rides, Salish Dancers and Drummers, and a street dance Saturday night.

Cowboy cooks brought chuck wagons from Montana, Washington and Wyoming.

They're giving spectators a taste of what it might have been like on one of the cattle drives from Texas.

There's a cook off Saturday afternoon.

"We cook five courses," said cook Dan McCaffree. "We'll have meat, potatoes, beans bread and dessert."

It's a chance for people to learn an important part of western history, said McCaffree.
