Peter Pan, Jackalope Jump, wrestling tourney, fundraisers, live music, and more shenanigans this weekend in the 10!

    Top o’ the St. Patty’s Day weekend to ye, Fremont County! Things are looking green…well, maybe not outside (not quite yet), but the weekend is shaping up to be a warm one, a packed one…and a fun one, too!

    Maybe you’ll win some green at tonight’s Bingo event at the fairgrounds…maybe you could dress up like a leprechaun or a silly shamrock for the Jackalope Jump…maybe you could wear some green and do a little jig at some of these live music events…maybe you could give some green to your local businesses and restaurants who are sure to have some St. Patrick’s Day promos and specials!

    However you plan your weekend, be safe, drive responsibly, and…”May your heart be light and happy. May your smile be big and wide and may your pockets always have a coin or two inside.”
