131 Years for Big Horn

It's one of the oldest towns in the county at 131 years, so why not throw a party? And that's just what the community of Big Horn did this past Saturday to celebrate its 131st anniversary with Big Horn Heritage Days.

It might be small, just three businesses along the main thoroughfare, but a lot of history can be found at Big Horn. Organizer Doug Meier...

The day began with a chuck wagon cook-off. Judging was based on the authenticity of the chuck wagon as well as the best cook.

Georgianna Lipus drove eight hours from Hamilton, Montana, with her husband Frank, to enter the competition.

It was a day filled with activity, a farmer's market, food and drink specials throughout town, live music all day, and the evening ended with a party at the Big Horn Smokehouse with The Teka Brock Band. But more than fun or history, Meier said Big Horn is all about heart.

Part of the proceeds from the event went to support the Big Horn Volunteer Fire Department, the Big Horn Lions Club, and the Big Horn City Historical Society.
