Saturday was the 25th annual Story Days, a day jam packed with sidewalk vendors and activities for all ages. Cars had to give way to pedestrian traffic as both sides of the main thoroughfare in Story was parked full.
Held every year in August, the Crow Fair, Parade, and Rodeo had something for everyone to enjoy. Held at Crow Agency MT, "Teepee Capital of the World", there was daily parades, rodeo performances, and pow wow dancing and drums.
