This year marks the 100th year anniversary of the Middle Park Fair and Rodeo and the West Grand / Kremmling Union High School. The Kremmling Days theme reflects the commemorative celebrations of these two organizations with the theme – 100 years of Pioneers.
In keeping with the pioneer theme, a father/ daughter duo were chosen for the honor of grand marshals. Kenneth Wheatley and Twila O’Hotto will be Grand Marshals of the Kremmling Day’s parade. Kenneth’s contributions to Kremmling as a pioneer have been substantial, and Twila was nominated for her work with the West Grand/Kremmling Union Alumni Association and her commitment to the Middle Park Fair and Rodeo. The last few years have seen the exhibit hall numbers grow with Twila serving as superintendent. Twila has also been essential in planning the annual West Grand/Kremmling Union high school reunion that takes place at Kremmling Days. This year the reunion is expected to attract well over 100 alumni and current and former staff.
To complete the honorees, the staff at the West Grand school will choose the queen and her attendants from the graduating class. Kremmling Chamber Director Shelly McManus has begun the music selection for the Kremmling Days event and has already booked P.J. Zahn for Friday night and Live to Tell for Saturday. She reports that Friday and Saturday’s entertainment will be the focus for the Chamber while Sunday’s annual church service in the park will be handled by a local church. The fundraising pancake breakfast will be provided by the Friends of the Library and Rotary this year.
Kremmling Days will see a return of the popular cliff golf competition, the Mustang mile and the Redneck Mudshuffle. On Father’s Day, the Rocky Mountain Armament will hold a shoot at the Ritschard place.
Kremmling Days is on June 17-19. More information about the shoot can be found at RMAguns.com
