Glacier National Park celebrates first 100 years
Next Tuesday, May 11th, the park will celebrate its first 100 years with a rededication ceremony to be held at the West Glacier Community Building. The festivities are set to get underway at 10:30 AM, and the public is invited to stop by to share in the celebration. The Park Service promises that attendees will receive special commemorative items to mark the centennial and that there will be plenty of birthday cake for all.
Following the ceremony, guests will be treated to special walking tours that will stop at various historical points in the parks compound. Highlights will include the park's museum collection, historic fire hose tower, the original park headquarters building and the historic Belton Bridge. The tours will be guided by retired Park Service employees who are returning to Glacier for this one special day.
For those unable to attend the rededication ceremony in person, the NPS will be using its social media outlets to share the celebration online. There will be live updates throughout the day on the park's Twitter and Facebook pages, and photos will be posted to the Glacier National Park photostream on Flickr.
