Young Guns Bozeman

Gallatin County Fair

Gallatin County Fair was pretty full-on and very busy. We were inside a hall alongside other free fun things to do for kids and had the luck of seeing Mango and Dango perform every time they did their stroll through the building.It was super cool!! We also did the bull ride, got to Level 3 even though it was the first time for the both of us (it's all in the hips!), did flips on the trampoline with harness, and I went with the girls on various rides. As it was also a 4-H fair, there were plenty of animals.

Summer with the Young Guns: Chinook, Montana County Fair

Since the 10th of July, I have been traveling with and working for the lovely McDowell family who run Young Guns Entertainment - a Wild West themed Fun Park for kids under ten. Hilary the mother, her two daughters, Emma and Charley and myself are working our way around different county and state fairs throughout Montana and Wyoming.

First up: Chinook. A small town county fair which featured 4-H activities, us, a wonderful clown called Pippi, Marcus the Funny Man who Does Tricks and The Bull Guy among other entertainment. Chinook, which has about 1200 people, is on the Hi-Line, Highway 2, which runs parallel to the Canadian border. The ladies of Chinook make the best PIE ever. We ate them so fast that I didn't have the chance to get my camera out.
