"Well we have had a great weekend with great weather actually and just a lot of activities. There is something every hour on the hour 2 or 3 things happening," explains organizer, Jay Russell. 

In fact vendors and volunteers came from all over the state to assist the Lewis and Clark foundation in keeping the rich story of the duo and their trek alive.

"More like about 30. A lot of vendors, we have selling all sorts of fine arts and crafts. We have food concessions as well," says Russell.

The Lewis and Clark Honor Guard are always thrilled to be volunteering their time to help educate the public on the journey of the famous explorers.

"And every year this is our biggest event to help out and volunteer our services at the Lewis and Clark festival," says reenactor, Darian Kath.

This weekend was very well attended, several passerby's stopped just to see what was going on.
