GREAT FALLS -

If you drove by Gibson Park this weekend and saw a few tipi in the park. It was because the Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center was celebrating their 25th Lewis and Clark festival. Gibson Park was sent back in time for the weekend as the Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center set up the 25th anniversary of the Lewis and Clark festival in the downtown park.

"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.

"and we have had good crowds, very steady, it's a good venue. Everybody coming in to gibson park here nice cool shade, a great spot to do it," adds Kath.

And according to Lewis and Clark weekend organizers the group plans to bring back the big event next year.

    ENTIAT, Wash. - A burn out operation is planned for Tuesday morning in an effort to establish a secure line in the bottom of the canyon where the Mills Canyon Fire is burning. Burning material rolling downhill and igniting spot fires on the north side of Swakane Canyon have caused concerns and indicate a vulnerability to a fire escape and repeatedly expose firefighters to very steep terrain and rolling material.
