                               HALLECK BAR PARTY

APRIL 2017 Known as the best cocktail party in Elko for the past 40+ years, members and friends with a glass of Beefeater gin, drink a toast to the acquisition of the antique bar and back bar from a saloon in the once wild and woolly nearby town of Halleck.  With an abundance of good company, good food, and of course, good gin, it is the best way to celebrate local history and culture.  The public is invited to join in celebrating a part of our local history.  The date for the next Halleck Bar Party is April 14, 2017 (6:00 – 9:00 pm), with the theme “City of Elko Centenial” (1917–2017).  Live entertainment and a silent auction!
CHILDREN’S OLD FASHIONED 4TH OF JULY Tuesday JULY 4, 2017, 9:00 – 10:30 am Join us again this Independence Day as we get back to our roots and celebrate the old fashioned way with a children’s parade, games, and ice cold lemonade. Children’s bicycle parade begins behind Sherman Statio at 8:45.
GREAT HUMBOLDT DUCK RACE DATES SUBJECT TO CHANGE The museum’s biggest fundraiser, the Great Humboldt Duck Race has become one of Elko’s unique family events.  Every year thousands of little rubber duckies are adopted by supporters of the museum and then dumped into the Humboldt River, where they race to the finish line.  The quickest duck wins its adopter $1,500 cash and all the pride and prestige that come with sweet victory.  Meet our mascot Delko Duck at the Elko Chamber of Commerce Home and Business Expo (May 7-8), the Cinco de Mayo Parade (May 6),  Lamoille Country Fair (June 25), and Art in the Park (8-9).
