Summer brings scores of activities for the residents of Castle Country, including fundraisers, athletic events, celebrations, and shows of all kinds. This weekend is no exception.
Today is the Utah State University-College of Eastern Utah Prehistoric Museum’s 50th Birthday. To celebrate the occasion the staff is inviting everyone to tour the museum free of charge. Then, from 2 to 4 p.m. museumgoers can enjoy cake and ice cream in the gallery. And at 4 p.m. there will be a live feeding of the “museum critters”, which will also be free to the public.
Today and Saturday bring Castle Country’s 5th Annual Rock, Fossil and Mineral Show. The event, hosted by the Elks Lodge, stretches both days from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
As we reported earlier in the week, June 4, Saturday, is Free Fishing day in Utah. You won’t need a license to fish, and according to the Division of Wildlife Resources, fishing should be great at low and mid-elevation reservoirs. Please make sure to abide by all the other fishing regulations, but enjoy the opportunity for free fishing.
There are several fundraisers happening Saturday, including the inaugural Hogs and Rods Charity Ride and Bike and Car Show presented by Milestone and the Ensign Foundation. Riders will leave pinnacle Nursing and Rehabilitation and travel to Intermountain Medical Center in Murray for the Car and Bike Show which will begin at 2 p.m.
