2017 Andy Devine Days (Photos by Aaron Ricca/Daily Miner)

KINGMAN – The Downtown Historic District was jam-packed Friday evening and most of Saturday for the Andy Devine Days celebration. Most of the action was on Beale and Fourth streets. The festivities really kicked off with the Tractor Supply Company’s Human Strength Tractor Pull staged between Black Bridge Brewery and Floyd’s and Company Real Pit BBQ. The Jonathan Lee Band put on a concert worthy of a national headliner between Rickety Cricket and The Farmhouse. Just about any downtown business that was open was filled with curious and paying customers and the UniSource Energy Vendor Row arts, crafts and food would satisfy anyone from early Christmas shoppers to someone on drugs. Saturday’s Andy Devine Days Parade had 73 entrees and lasted a solid hour and a half. Beale Street was crawling with families enjoying food, beverages, mechanical bull rides and bungee jumping. The Miners Mineral Monument was officially dedicated and sealed, with time capsules and photos of those involved in the project placed inside. The cool autumn weather hit the spot and everyone seemed to have a blast before the frigid winds of fall and winter blow through.
