CANYON CITY - The Whiskey Gulch Gang is planning for the '62 Days Celebration coming up in Canyon City June 5 and 6.
The annual event commemorates the discovery of gold on Canyon Creek on June 8, 1862, and had been held every year since 1922. Activities during the celebration include a barbecue, parade, entertainment in Canyon City's Sproul Park and vendors. The historic F.C. Sels Brewery is open, too, along with live music.
Anyone interested in helping out or participating as a vendor is invited to attend the weekly meetings, held at 7 p.m. every Friday at F.C. Sels Brewery in Canyon City.
