It has certainly been an interesting year. We know it’s been a while since we’ve updated you on our activities so it seemed a good time to check in. Who would have imagined what we all were in store for in this notorious year of 2020. This past month our beloved Sierra has been experiencing fires at an alarming rate. Area pack stations have had to close down early due to Forest Service complete closures of National Forests. National Parks closed and many businesses are experiencing hardships. We want you to know that here at Mule Days we remain optimistic and hopeful for the future. A bit of rain has cleared some of the worst smoke out of the Eastern Sierra and fall colors are on the way. It is a reminder that there will always be hardships and challenges, but like the mules we all love so much, we persevere and carry on. There is always hope and a brighter day ahead.
To that end we want you to know that due to some extreme budgeting and the generosity of so many fans, RV visitors, sponsors, contestants, advertisers and vendors, we are in good condition and well into planning for our 2021 event: the 51st Annual Mule Days, Take 2! Before getting ahead of ourselves, we want to remember and thank all of you who have supported us throughout this time. We couldn’t have done it without you!
