Thousands gather in downtown Mountain View the last weekend of September each year to step back in time and enjoy Pioneer Days. This annual autumn event, presented by the Mountain View Chamber of Commerce, celebrates the pioneer spirit that built our town and America. Friday begins with the annual Ham and Bean Supper, music and dancing. Saturday morning kicks off with an old fashioned Flapjack Breakfast. Throughout the day, join the festivities, including old time music, dancing, antique car show, crafts, live pioneer demonstrations, crosscut wood demonstrations, Tee Pee Village, parachute flights, sack races, many children’s activities and events, crafting and business booths, carnival food, parade and many other “must-attend” events. It is a day to remember! For more information about Pioneer Days or to reserve a booth, please contact Chamber director and event coordinator Linda Lewis at (877) 266-8706 or (417) 934-2794.
