Citizens celebrate heritage at Leamarado Days

Hundreds gathered in Leamington on Labor Day to enjoy the 70th annual ‘Leamarado Days’ celebration. Locals of the 131-year-old town of Leamington have since been continuing traditions by hosting the annual event, which began in 1945. Leamarado Days has always taken place on Labor Day to honor the hardworking miners, rail workers, farmers, veterans and religious leaders of the area. Last Monday’s events, which took place near the historic Leamington LDS chapel and town rodeo grounds, included the Mayor Margaret Pruitt Memorial 5K Run, a local talent and magic show, museum tours, jackpot team roping, a big lunch and games and races for the kids. This year’s Grand Marshals, Linda Gail and Elmo Dean Neilsen, were also in attendance. Afternoon rodeo events for Monday included ranch saddle bronc racing, kids’ steer riding, youngster calf riding, junior barrel racing, senior barrel racing, mutton bustin’, the greased pig event and the money calf event. The celebration later closed out with an evening movie at 9 p.m.

Deseret Bazaar brought life back to old fairgrounds.

Locals of all ages experienced a delightful Saturday at the third-annual Deseret Heritage Bazaar. The community event, held at the Deseret Heritage Hall, took place in honor and celebration of West Millard County’s 100-year-old traditions. The bazaar brought life back to the old Deseret fairgrounds. The old fairgrounds sat vacant for years until locals rallied to renovate the property into an event center. The building and landscaping has come a long way in the last four months. Volunteers showcased the hard work and countless hours of preparation. Homemade items such as baked goodies, quilts, crafts, clothing, jewelry, winter gear and baby accessories were on display for sale. Proceeds from the bazaar benefi t the ongoing renovation of the Deseret Heritage Hall. An early morning 5K run kicked off the fundraising event. Many people appreciated running for the cause on the newly paved roads behind the Heritage Hall. By midmorning the aroma of tasty BBQ fi lled the air, attracting adults to the shaded patio. The mouthwatering food was unexpectedly low-priced. Shoes were tapping along with live musical performances given by talented locals. Folks gathered to enjoy the food, music and conversation with neighbors and friends. Old-timers shared stories from the fi rst days of the West Millard County Fair. Cotton candy, snow cones, hot dogs and soda fueled the children for enjoyable games and entertainment. Kids smiled and laughed while participating in bouncy houses, a dunk tank, a duck and fishing pond, face painting, a basketball shoot and a barrel-onwheels ride led by ATV. Adults and kids alike rummaged through the fundraising yard sale held in the basement of the Heritage Hall, finding a variety of gently used treasures. At the end of the bazaar names were drawn in a raffle that offered up valuable prizes to donors. The community of Deseret truly came together, mingling and showing support for one another. Everyone that attended the bazaar created memories they will undoubtedly pass on for generations.

19th annual Old Capitol Arts Festival circulated creativity in Fillmore 

Fillmore’s Territorial Statehouse Park was packed with a large amount of foot traffic for the 19th annual Old Capital Arts and Living History Festival, which took place Wednesday through Saturday of last week. Crowds of people from all across Utah came out to take in shows, demonstrations, exhibits and food sampling that could not be experienced just anywhere in Millard County. “We had a lot of people come this year and our booths and concession stands all did well,” said festival co-chair Abe Johnson. “We talked to people who came from Nevada and places all across Utah, including Sanpete County, Sevier County, Moab and Ogden. A lot of individuals and families who were originally from here also came back for the festival.” Several exhibits and unique curiosities caused people to stop and stare. For example, the living history and pioneer demonstrations showed off how people lived their daily lives long ago. Attendees witnessed people dressed in pioneer attire spinning, weaving, working with wood, baking, displaying antiques and working an old time photo display. An authentic blacksmith and wheelwright also gave people a realistic look into the past. Another big highlight was the Utah Territory Gun Show, which had a gun display showing the evolution of fi rearms ranging from the Civil War to World War II. Included as part of the show was the Gatling Gun Shoot, where folks were able to shoot an original Gatlin Gun at the Fillmore Shooting Range. Pioneer games and entertainment for children included Lincoln Log cabin building, walking on stilts, hoop throwing, the amusing Willie the Clown and much more. Those wanting a fun trip through town hitched rides on authentic horsedrawn wagons and stagecoaches. Bands, duos, dancers, singers, songwriters, poets, balladeers and other music artists provided continuous entertainment for crowds at the festival. The Bar ‘D’ Wranglers band returned this year, telling stories with renditions of old favorites and memorable ballads for the audience. “The Bar ‘D’ Wranglers from Durango, Colo. put on a great show again this year,” Johnson said. “The Native American dancers and hoop dancers were also great and we’d like to get them again next year. New performers this year included Rio Bravo and Foreign Figures.” Other musical artists came from a wide variety of genres, including Latino salsa, mellow folk or country and hard rock. Artists included Los Hermanos de los Andes, Falconer, Clive Romney and Willingly, Bella Musica Mexicana, Doug and Ian Jenkins, the Lonesome Oak String Band, Terminus, Kirk and Jayleen, Pistol Rock, TFF Acoustic, the Blue Notes, Acoustic Echo, Nora Healy, Silversage and Healy’s Honky Tonk. Festival attendees showed off their own singing and dancing skills during the open mic sessions and closing pioneer dance. Folks enjoyed hearing about old west lore and other tales from the storytelling, western music and cowboy poetry performances. Art lovers visited various artist booths at the festival, which included original artwork, prints and fi ne crafts for sale. Adults and children who entered into the festival’s 12th annual Judged Art Show were presented with ribbon awards and cash prizes for their top pieces. For the winning artists, Courtney Lunt garnered Best of Show in the professional category (for “Refi ner’s Fire,” an oil painting of a blacksmith); Donna Dyer won Best of Show in the amateur category (for her photo of a duck titled “Green Wing Teal”); and Emery Hare received Best of Show in the K-12 category (for her photo titled “First Winter”). Lunt had also won Best of Show in the professional category last year. Check out millardccp.com for more pictures.
