Though actual numbers of the many visitors who attended Pioneer Town's opening on May 28 weren't available from event organizers, one of them told the DCI that "a record number" of visitors passed through the Visitor Center for the day.

Volunteers of the Surface Creek Valley Historical society organized over 20 special demonstrations and activities for their opening-day guests last weekend. Entertaining experiences from old-time blacksmithing to costumed greeters to a petting zoo were taking place throughout the day.

Veterans of Foreign Wars Post #9221 provided a pancake breakfast and the Cedaredge Rotary offered a cookout lunch to visitors.

The annual opening-day event marks a traditional beginning of summertime activities and events in the community hosted by Pioneer Town and its volunteers that will include concerts, car shows, and other events for visitors and local residents as well.
