Lander Brewfest, Shoshoni Day, Castle Gardens, trapper convention, live music, yard sales…all this weekend in Fremont County!

    Grab your chairs, hats, and sunscreen ‘cause it’s gonna be another packed weekend of awesome fun and festivities in Fremont County!

    There’s fun to be had at the Lander Brewfest…fun to be had at Shoshoni Day on Saturday, along with the Flywheelers’ events…the Wyoming State Trappers Convention is going on in Riverton…there are few opportunities to shop at some yard sales, farmers markets and hear some live music. A few of these events are fundraisers for some great causes, so check ‘em out and support some awesome community groups and organizations!

    There’s fun to be had everywhere in Wyoming! As the weather warms up (significantly, I might add)…be mindful of any fire risks (BBQs, campfires, etc.). Also, be sure to take care of yourself…wear sunscreen, bring plenty of water with you and hydrate often! Think water safety; rivers are probably flowing high and fast, so be careful if you’re out fishing, boating, kayaking, etc. Pack your vehicle with an emergency bag, and check your spare tires, fluids, etc. Nothing can ruin a weekend faster than an accident, emergency, or car trouble!


    Now that you’re all prepped and pumped…be safe, drive responsibly, shop local, and most of all…have fun!
