Do you think that nothing’s happening in Bishop, California, this May? Think again! From scenic marathons to kicking mules and mouth-watering local treats, there’s a whole host of exciting events that will keep you entertained on a Bishop getaway…
 
Taste of the Sierra
Want to sample a Taste of the Sierra? Then make your way along to the Charles Brown Auditorium at the Tri-County Fairgrounds at 4 pm on Friday, May 4! This is a great opportunity to try some delicious samples from Bishop region’s many restaurants, bakeries and caterers. A $25 donation gets you all the samples you like as well as two beverages.
 
Wild Wild West Marathon
Grab your running shoes because the Wild Wild West Marathon will take participants through the Alabama Hills and the foothills of Mount Whitney on May 5. There’s a great choice of events to take part in, including a 50K, a 10-mile and a three-mile fun run. It’s also walker-friendly.
 
Mule Days
Later in May, Bishop will be kicking when the town celebrates its famous ‘Mule Days’. Prepare yourself for a truly unique event that is part-mule show, part-test of skills, and part-Wild West show. Taking place May 22 to 27, this year’s celebration will include the top packers in the nation participating in the signature pack scrambles to vie for the World Champion title, concert performances by top Western Music Association entertainers, and a parade down Main Street that honours the mule’s legacy.
 
Do you want to make the very most of the beautiful Eastern Sierra this May? Then take a break at the oasis retreat that is the Creekside Inn in Bishop. Take a dip in the heated outdoor pool, marvel at the elegantly appointed rooms or enjoy the mouth-watering choices on offer in the breakfast room.
