June Jewels

Welcome to June in Wallace. June in Wallace is just like June in other American small town, and--well, on second thought, Wallace just may be a teeny, tiny, tad bit different than a few, ok, some, all right, all right, MOST American small towns in America, the world, and probably even Mars. Well, maybe it may be more like Mars with some very out of this world customs and celebrations. Anyway, welcome to June in Wallace, Idaho, my hometown.

Ok, maybe the first event is not so different than most small towns host, but you have got to admit, Lead Creek Derby and a traveling headstone celebration are Not your normal civic festivals.
But, that's Wallace, Enjoy.

PS, Spelling and word errors in event descriptions are not mine. I make enough errors on my own.
