Vendors, a parade and Crow Nation dancers and singers were among the attractions Saturday as this year's annual Story Days got into full swing.

Patty Hoover, president of the Story Woman's Club, said the event was to celebrate the Story community. And the woman's club again provided lunch for those in attendance.

She described this year's menu.

Other events during the three-day celebration included Friday's Dutch oven cook-off, and a number of vendor's booths, including one operated by the Gold Prospectors Association of America, where gold-panning was demonstrated. Member Bob Stanley said most of the members at Story Days live in the area.

The Story Branch Library was holding its annual book sale Saturday. Library Manager Stephanie Hutt explained.

Other activities included a silent auction in the Woman's Club building, children's events and carnival games in a circus tent, and a Story historical tour on the trolley. Events continue today with worship at the Story Park starting at 11 a.m., and a picnic lunch at the park starting at noon.
