Scaled-Back Heritage Days Getting Underway In Alliance

ALLIANCE – Alliance Heritages Days 2020, with the theme “Alliance Strong,” is this week but like the just completed Fur Trade Days in Chadron, will be held without its traditional events because of the state’s COVID-19 rules and the economic slowdown from the coronavirus pandemic.

Carnival operator Frazier Shows of America terminated all its summer contracts and there will be no food vendors downtown.

Saturday’s Heritage Days Parade has become the “Cruise the Butte” with participants encouraged to decorate their vehicles, and the 7th Street Dancers are hosting an outdoor Family Night Movie on Friday.
