(GOLD BAR, WA.) -- The annual Gold Dust Days celebration starts today and runs through Sunday July 24.
As always at GDD there's the family friendly and fun Civil War encampment along Highway 2, a parade, car show, gold panning at the grade school where all the hand crafted items are for sale, food, live music on the stage, free events for the kids and more.
The Gold Dust Days Heritage Festival pays tribute to the rich western history of Gold Bar, thus you get extra points if you wear cowboy boots
