With a parade, duck races and a park full of vendors, the town of Clearmont is celebrating the town and its history this weekend.

Terrill Foster, who's chair of the Clearmont Historical Group, said the first such celebration in fact was held in 1914.

In recent years, the original Clearmont Day became a regular event and has been extended from one day to three.

The event started Friday night with a corn hole tournament and continues Sunday with a chili cook-off starting at noon.

The parade was Saturday, along with the vendors in the park, duck races at 3 p.m. and other events including the Clear Creek Stop Street Dance starting at 6.

Among those in the park were the Kearny Frontier Regulars, who came from Fort Phil Kearny and brought their cannon.

Frontier Regular Patty Wilson said the living history group does presentations throughout the area.

Foster said Clearmont Days is organized by Clearmont's town government.
