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. But due to concerns of COVID-19 the traditional party, dance, bbq, auction, and concert have been canceled.

The horses will leave the rodeo grounds Saturday at 2 p.m. and be driven through town as they have been since 1982. The public will be able to safely social distance and observe the horses.

This year the bbq and dance event would have raised money for Track Chairs, which would have helped those in need. Even without an event they have raised the funds for one chair, but are trying to raising money for another. If you wish to contribute, send a check to HAR Horse Drive, Box 399, Gardiner, MT 59030.
