Participants have raved about the uniqueness, entertainment, and learning value that this celebration brings to the community.  One participant wrote, 

"There aren't many events that are fun for children as well as educational for the adults like the Bear River Celebration...there is a special level of professionalism and an absence of commercialism that makes this celebration refreshing."
