The focus of the two-day event is the history and culture of the Lewis and Clark Corps of Discovery. The expedition traveled through the Lolo Pass area on their journey across the United States over 200 years ago in 1805 and 1806. The Traveler’s Rest Brigade will be setting up “camp” at the Lolo Pass Visitor Center. Brigade members easily move from ancient history as re-enactors back to modern life to engage visitors in conversation.
The event will include live demonstrations of leather working, beading, musketry, horsemanship, medicine of 200 years ago and bullet casting. Brigade members dress and use period correct clothing and camp equipment.
The Lolo Pass Visitor Center is open seven days a week from 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Pacific Time. The Visitor Center features an interpretive display room, gift shop, educational videos and local travel information.
