Mount Ellis Recreates the Wild West

Decked out in cowboy boots and hats, the Mount Ellis Elementary Home and School team rounded up Bozeman Valley families for an evening of fun at the Wild West Fall Fest. Entertainment included a music jamboree, old time photo booth, fiery hot chili cook-off, pie eating contest, a maze, games for the kids and much more. If you were brave enough to climb in the saddle, you could also enjoy a wild bucking barrel ride.

Food for the evening was a meal of burgers, ranch beans, root-beer floats and candied apples.

As the little buckaroos began to wear down, the root-beer bottles were emptied and friendships renewed, participants kicked off their boots, and hung their lariats and hats until next year.
