The Western Historic Trails Center in Council Bluffs is holding an event this weekend to honor two of our nation’s greatest explorers. Program planner Kathy White says this is the fifth annual “Lewis and Clark White Catfish Living History Weekend.”The event commemorates a stopover in the area by Lewis and Clark in July of 1804. White says the highlight of the event is an historical camp set up near the Missouri River.White says activities are planned indoors, too, including music from the early-1800s and a lecture series. White says attendance at the festival has grown, in part, because the 200-year anniversary of the Lewis and Clark voyage is approaching. The festival runs through Sunday at the Western Historic Trails Center, which is off Exit One-B on Interstate 80-29.
