As the sunset glow illuminates the top of the flour mill on the first day of summer it serves as a reminder of the sun setting on the Parkway Motel that until this day stood for many years in the now vacant area you see in the foreground. Yes, the Parkway Motel is no more but perhaps the following photos, taken in 2006, will provide a glimpse into what was and bring back memories of the past.

Three year old Parker of Sheridan seemed perfectly content to sit in the middle of a very busy Main Street, with foot traffic all around her, during Thursday's Street Festival. Parker was in front of the Powder River Heating & Air Conditioning booth and game area where the art of drawing with chalk peaked her interest. Scroll down for more of Parker and a couple of others enjoying the evening.

Between the standing room only audience and those seated in chairs were this lively group of youngsters dancing the evening away to the music of Gary Small and the Coyote' Bros. on Tin Star Records during the first 3rd Thursday Street Festival.

The first 3rd Thursday Street Festival of the year in Downtown Sheridan had a little something for everyone.

Concluding the first 3rd-Thursday Street Festival of the year was the "Fire in the Sky" finale at 9:00 pm. What a magnificent conclusion to a perfect evening on Main Street in Sheridan. This view is looking down Grinnell Plaza toward Main Street with City Hall in the center and the show above.

Summer officially started in the Sheridan area at 5:09 pm Wednesday - and this is what it looked like just an hour later. While most of the nation was sweltering it out with temperatures above 90 we peaked out at 78 degrees. Temperatures are headed up however, with Thursday expected to hit 84, Friday 90, Saturday 91 and - get ready for this - 102 on Sunday.

The RealBird Re-enactment is gearing up for this weekend, with performances Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at 1 PM. Don't miss it!!!
