70 Degrees To Bless Depot Days

David Bond of Wallace Street Jounal writes of this weekend's Depot Days:

The Saturday forecast is for 70-degree weather and the car show for the Wallace N.P. Depot's annual event will be in full swing. Cast yourself up and down the street and recall what “Detroit Iron” used to, and still can, be. Even the Brits used to build fine cars, in their day, and there will be a few fine examples this weekend. We still build good cars: Ford is building the finest machines on the highways, and your tax dollars weren't spent bailing them out, as they were spent rescuing Government Motors and screwing its bondholders, and which is now a Chinese subsidiary (just kidding, but close). ... At any rate, we've got a fast party in Wallace headed thisaway this weekend: blues, jazz, impromptu harmoniums, you name it.  The Northern Pacific Depot is recently spruced up and ready for a fresh look. We're a proud town with a proud history. More here..

Question: Have you ever attended Depot Days in Wallace? Thoughts?
