Roller derby brawl, craft fair, quilt retreat, dart tourney, and more events kick off Spring Break in Fremont County!

    Welcome, Spring! (Is it premature to say so? I don’t want to jinx it!) You never know, because springtime in Wyoming might mean that the days could start nice and sunny with blue skies, and then the afternoon could quickly turn cloudy, windy, and cold. But we’re just at the second to last weekend of March, so who knows what Mother Nature has in store!

    Fortunately, there are still plenty of indoor events that are going on, and more and more fun things are planned as we move closer to summer. Gardens are being planned as garden centers are opening up…there’s a Spring craft fair in Lander, a livestock (lamb and hog) sale in Riverton, a quilt retreat, and a roller derby brawl…oh, and FYI, there will be 400 athletes from around the state in Lander this weekend for the State gymnastics championships at Lander Valley High School, so show those out-of-towners some of that Fremont County hospitality!

    If you don’t see your event listed below, be sure to get it into the County 10 events calendar; we want to know what you have going on, too! And as you’re out and about this fine week of Spring Break, take along an umbrella just in case…stay dry, be safe, and most of all…have fun!
