Montana Wild West Fest

We spent our 4th day in Helena at the Wild West Fest in East Helena.  We voted for our favorite quilt, our favorite chili and our favorite car in the car show.  We saw an Indian demonstrating axe throwing, archery, and sword work.  We visited 3 chuckwagons and learned how they cook, listened to some music, visited the 2nd Calvary camp, an Indian village, took a ride on a horse drawn cart and did some shopping.  I purchased a wallet made of Buffalo hide.
