Live entertainment was a big part of the festivities at last Friday’s big event celebrating the 150th anniversary of the driving of the Golden Spike at Promontory, with re-enactors, dancers and musicians responsible for helping to keep tens of thousands of visitors from around the world engaged in the festivities.
Students from two local schools had the opportunity to perform on the biggest stage of their young lives, and they didn’t disappoint. As it has been in past years, the Bear River High School band was on hand May 10, playing on the main stage before thousands of spectators.
For several hours, the band was stationed on the main stage with one of the best views anyone had of the historic occasion.
The band played everything from jaunty, upbeat tunes from the 19th century to have the weighty honor of playing “Taps” during the annual wreath-laying ceremony in remembrance of those who gave their lives in the construction of the transcontinental railroad.
