Black Diamond celebrates with fun run, chili during Miners Day

Black Diamond’s eighth annual Miners Day celebration is set to roll July 7.

The day begins at 9 a.m. with a 5K run, the second year for the event. Also at 9, the museum opens its doors for anyone wishing to take a glimpse into the small town’s colorful history. The museum remains open until 4 p.m.

A number of events get started at 10 a.m., including a chili cook-off, barbecue at the Eagles, a dunk tank, beer-and-brats garden, vendor booths, live bands and a special craft booth just for children.

A fashion show begins at 10:30 a.m.

The 5K run serves as a fundraiser for the miner memorial planned for the museum site. The cost for online registration – taken until midnight Thursday, July 5 – is $20. T-shirts could not be guaranteed for those registering after July 3. On the day of the race, registration jumps to $25.
