ROCK SPRINGS — Get ready for family-friendly Second Saturday activities in downtown Rock Springs on Aug. 8.

Lanky the Clown, a longtime favorite at Wyoming’s Big Show, is bringing his hilarity and antics. Join him for a special stage show, near the caboose on South Main Street, at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. In between the shows, you’ll find him wandering around downtown.

Seedskadee Trout Unlimited will also be hosting a special scavenger hunt from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Get the clues from the Seedskadee Trout Unlimited booth by the caboose, stroll the streets of downtown, search for items in businesses and collect as many fly-fishing flies from the following merchants;

— Broadway Burger Station

— Community Fine Arts Center

— Daniel’s Jewelers

— Escape Day Spa

— Escape 307

— New Studio Photography & Framing

— Pickin’ Palace

— Rock Springs Library

— Sidekicks Wine & Book Bar

— Square State Brewing

— The Stellar Cellar

Bring all of the flies gathers on the hunt to win some great prizes and play Fish Trivia!

There will also be a “Take a Story Walk” sponsored by the Sweetwater County Library System. Read the charming story of a little girl’s errands with her mother as your meander the downtown sidewalks. Begin the story at the Rock Springs Historical Museum at 201 B St. and find each page to the story in participating businesses. The story will be up through Aug. 31.
