Powell’s 6th Annual Paint the Town Red Happening August 25

Mark your calendars for the 6th Annual Paint the Town Red, happening August 25th in downtown Powell, Wyoming.

This Northwest College event has a jam pack schedule full of fun activities for all ages like live music, games, food trucks and much more. The festivities begin at 4 p.m. and wrap up by 10 p.m. and admission is free.

Paint the Town Red has become one of Powell’s largest and popular events that brings the community and the local community college together for a celebration. The date also coincides with the start of a new school year for the college, with new NWC students getting a chance to see what the community of Powell has to offer.

This year’s headlining entertainer is Dawson Hollow, an American-Indie-Folk-Rock band that was formed in 2016 by a group of five siblings who has been making music together for more than 20 years. Their one-of-a-kind style fuses Americana nostalgia with iconic five-part harmonies.
