Bannack State Park will get a helping hand with flash flood restoration.
The Beaverhead County Museum will host the Bannack Fair tonight.
The fair will help raise money to restore the park after last month's flash flood that damaged 80 percent of the buildings.
A silent auction will begin at 6 p.m. with refreshments and programs at 7.
There will be music, cowboy poetry, history lessons, slide shows and Brother Van will put on an old fashion church service.
"For the next year we've got a lot of work to do and this will be our first volley as a fundraiser," said Stan Smith, Bannack Fair Chairman. "We want to keep everybody involved with Bannack."
Smith says there will be a couple more events later this year, although no date has been scheduled yet.
