CORINNE — Corinne’s reputation as a rough-and-tumble Old West town will be the backdrop for the historical pageant, “Corinne, the Gentile City.”
The pageant is a comedic and colorful play that spotlights Corinne’s early history and includes the antics of characters such as the town sheriff, the mule skinners and Corinne’s infamous saloon girls, or “soiled doves.”
The annual pageant begins at dusk on Friday and Saturday, June 29 and 30, at the Corinne City Park, on South Front Street. A pre-show, featuring 11-year-old local singer and barrel racing champion Georgia Giordano, begins at 8:30 p.m. Admission to the show is free, but audience members should bring their own lawn chairs and blankets.
The event also includes the Box Elder County Centennial Train, which at 7 p.m. will ferry visitors through the streets of Corinne to visit the city’s historical sites. The doors of Corinne Lodge No. 5, the oldest continually used Masonic Lodge in the state, will also be open to the public for tours from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
