Correction: Hells Canyon Mule Days will be celebrating mules and muleskinners’ traditions on the weekend after Labor Day, September 7th, 8th, & 9th. From its humble beginnings in 1981, it has become the fastest growing mule show in the Northwest. This annual event draws mule owners, and spectators intrigued by this long-eared equine, from all over the West. In 2010 Hells Canyon Mule Days was selected, for the fifth consecutive year, by American Cowboy Magazine as one of the 101 Great Western Events. This year’s mule show will be three full days of events that include classes for every age group and skill level. It is a fun family weekend and youngsters enjoy competing and showing their mulemanship abilities as much as the older well-honed contestants. Classes include everything from driving to pole bending. The weekend is packed full of mule- related happenings and there is something to see and do for the whole family including vendors, a quilt show, parade, Cowboy Poetry Gathering and a BBQ dinner with western music. In addition, a mule and horse sale will be held Saturday as well as a Dutch Oven cook-off on Sunday. Daily Show admission: $10.00 for Adults, $8.00 for Seniors (60 & older) $2.00 for Kids (7 thru 12 years) and Kids 6 years and younger are free when accompanied by an adult. Be sure to make HCMD part of your summer plans and come celebrate with us. FMI contact Sondra Lozier, 541-426-3271, cell 541-263-0104, toll free 888-323-3271.
