Bear Lake Outdoor Heritage Days growing

Last year’s first ever Bear Lake Outdoor Heritage Center went so well that the second ever such celebration has been in the planning stages for months, and it is just a few weeks away. Pat Argyle is a member of the organizing committee and says that attendance at the first celebration exceeded expectations. “It was so great that everyone said they were going to bring more people next year, friends and family, because they felt like they could spend the whole day there and it didn’t cost them an arm and a leg to be there,” Argyle said on KVNU’s Crosstalk show. “We’ve got fun events. We’ve got fishing, women trying to catch fish, kids trying to catch fish. There’s prizes involved. When the kids catch the fish at the very end of the day we’re going to cook them for everybody to eat.” Bear Lake Heritage Days weekend is September 9 and 10. A Friday night dutch oven dinner is one of the new additions to the schedule of events. Families attending are encouraged to bring a potluck dish that night. Other highlights include a fly fishing contest with prizes and a gun raffle with five guns available in the raffle.
