Wedding Walk, sheep sheering, murder mystery theater, and live music concerts this weekend in the 10!

    April showers are right on time, and the May flowers are starting to bloom! Fortunately, many of the events happening this weekend are indoors, but do bring an umbrella just in case we’re graced with that random shower or two!

    There’s a Wedding Walk in Riverton, and some awesome live music and concerts going on…not only are things greening up and getting beautiful, the weekends in Fremont County are getting way busier, so if you haven’t already done so, get your event posted on County 10 events. So everyone can mark their own calendars and make plans for this awesome spring/summer season.

    Plenty to do, and we’re puttin’ away the boots and breaking out the flip-flops! Greenhouses and garden centers are getting pretty busy, too…and though winter may be over for the most part, the roads can still be oily and slick out there, so be sure to drive safely and courteously.


    Most of all…have fun!
