Harlo and Huntley (No. 134)

First Aired Monday, May 23, 2011

Attend the threshing bee in Huntley, visit the Harlo Theatre, and dance in Grass Range.

The Backroads crew attends the annual threshing bee in Huntley to visit a simpler era when hay wagons were piled high and steam ruled the prairie. At the Harlo Theatre in Harlowton, students run everything from popcorn sales to projectors, proving there's more to this little theatre than box office returns. In Grass Range, we'll meet a group of folks who come from miles around one Sunday every month for a sense of community and nostalgia - and because they love to dance.
