ENTERPRISE — The 33rd Annual Hells Canyon Mule Days was held under sunny skies with a bumper crop of contestants.

After a soggy Thursday, the day before the event started, organizer Sondra Lozier said, “We are very happy that God was good to us and the weather cleared up.”

Lozier said with all the rain Enterprise got, they didn’t need a water truck to wet down the track, arena  and grassy parking area behind the announcer’s booth this year.

Not only did the weather hold, but the attendance and participant numbers were exceptional. Lozier said there were 41 entries in the parade, up from last year.

Lozier said, “And our contestant level was way up. We had three big mule companies come this year.”

She said the cowboy poets and musicians were also  popular this year.

Judy White, who carries the Canadian flag on her thoroughbred mule, returned for her third year. Her mule is 17.5 hands and looks like a race horse with long ears, said Lozier.

“Overall, we are very pleased and now we are working on next year already!” Lozier said.
