Beautiful Fall weather is in store for weekend events in Fremont County

Summers are packed with all sorts of things to do, but I think Autumn is the best time of year in Wyoming. The trees turn into brilliant reds and yellows, making for some spectacular day hike vistas. The weather is just right…cooled down enough for a jacket or sweater, but warm enough to enjoy the sunny days (which are getting shorter).

There are always activities and events that bring our communities together. Read on and check out County 10 events to plan your weekends in “The County”!

On Friday…

It’s First Friday at all Fremont County Museums! Take your kiddos and enjoy a free day (with a paying adult) and explore your town’s history. The museums are open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Check out fremontcountymuseums.com for information on this and more of our museum’s awesome Fall events!

At CWC tonight, the UW American Heritage Center presents “A Sissy in Wyoming” at 6 p.m. in the Robert A. Peck Arts Center. A part of a statewide tour, this production is a playwright’s reading by Gregory Hinton based on the life of Wyoming educator, activist, and crossdresser Larry “Sissy” Goodwin. Admission is free.
