A lot of people will be in Richmond during the next few days because the annual <a href=”http://richmond-utah.com/bwdays.html” target=”_blank”>Black & White Days</a> celebration opened Tuesday and a Junior Cattle Show and continues through Saturday when there will be a lot of activities.
There is a new chair this year after Jeff Young, who has been in charge over the last 12 years, is now the Mayor of Richmond. His replacement is Kelly Crafts and she is excited about the job.
Crafts says she hopes a lot of people turn out for what she calls, “a fascinating historical event.”
“This is our 102nd year that we’ve been celebrating Black & White Days,” Crafts exclaims. “There are lots of fun activities. We have the Highland Games coming again this year on Saturday. We have an outdoor moving on Friday night, Moana.
“We’ve got the Cow-A-Bunga race which is a 1 mile/5K and 12K running up to the Cherry Peak Ski Resort. We’ve got a lot of fun family activities and performances in the park.”
Crafts says people will be coming from many other states for the Western Spring Hosltein Show and the Richmond Heritage Cattle Show.
The traditional Black & White Days parade is scheduled for Saturday at 5 p.m. The Grand Marshall is former Mayor Mike Hall and his wife Jennifer.
