Kenmare Pioneer Days

Posted: Updated:

A little bit of North Dakota's history was brought back to life today in Kenmare, where more than 500 people from across the country gathered to celebrate the town's annual Pioneer Day.

People from as far as Canada, and even Chicago explored the museum today that holds over 12 buildings and shops from the early 1900's in the Kenmare area.

While kids played games, there was log splitting, pig roasting, and even a motorcycle raffle for others.

The event has gone on for years now, and new additions and improvements are continuing.

The president of the Historical Society says that these aspects keep larger crowds coming each year.

(Bryan Quigley, President of Lake County Historical Society) "We keep doing improvements every year. we have an active board and a group of volunteers here in Kenmare, and we keep doing improvements and people keep coming back to see what we did this year. We love history, and people who love history like to do things like this."

The event directors hope everyone will visit Kenmare next year for Pioneer Day.
