Annual Hell’s A Roarin’ Horse Drive & BBQ Saturday in Gardiner
It's one of the most fun and exciting events of the Memorial Day Weekend: The Hell's A Roarin' horse drive through the streets of Gardiner this Saturday, May 25th. Hundreds of horses will be driven from the rodeo grounds up to the Hell's A Roarin' Ranch in mountains above Gardiner.
Once the horses make it to the ranch, you're invited to the BBQ afterwards complete with music from Adrian Buckaroogirl and Wylie & The Wild West. This is a rain or shine event. Tents will be setup with heaters should they be needed, so everyone will be warm and dry.
Here's a schedule for Saturday's Hell's A Roarin' Horse Drive:
12p - 1p: Horse viewing at Gardiner Rodeo Grounds
1p: The horses leave rodeo grounds and head home
3p: Meet and Greet. No host bar open and food is available and for sale. The Fall River Boys entertain, while you peruse fine art that will be auctioned off. The silent auction items will be out for bidding. There are too many raffle items to name, but tickets will be available for sale.
5p - 6p: Adrian Buckaroogirl on stage performing. She is a billboard chart-topping singer/songwriter who holds veterans dear to her heart. Her dad proudly served and she is here to honor all veterans.
6p - 7p: Live fine art auction. Jason Owen, a professional auctioneer from Texas, traveled to Montana just for this event to help raise money for veterans.
7p: Dancing with Wylie and the Wild West
Tickets this year are $25 for adults and $20 for kids 16 and under. Children under 5 are free and welcome. There is plenty of space for parking, and all tickets will be sold at the gate. There is room for anyone that would like to attend.
