From its humble beginnings in 1981 it has progressed steadily and is the fastest growing Mule Show in the Northwest. This annual event draws mule and donkey owners, and spectators intrigued by this long-eared equine, from all over the West. In 2010 Hells Canyon Mule Days was selected, for the fifth consecutive year, by American Cowboy Magazine as one of the 101 Great Western Events. Also, in part of this historical event, in 2008 First Lady Laura Bush awarded the city of Enterprise a Preserve American Community Award. It will be held from Sept. 6 - 8 at various locations in Enterprise. Go online to www.hellscanyonmuledays.com.
