The Lewis and Clark Confluence Tower in Hartford has been open for about four years, and there is a returning event on the calendar this weekend. Visitors, as always, are welcome to go up into the 150-foot tall structure that oversees the confluence of the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers.  A special attraction Saturday morning is the Itchy Brothers Chainsaw Art show.

Beginning at 10am, the performers will begin carving a number of sculptures in salute to the American Bald Eagle, according to one of the carvers, Don Johnson.

This will be the first in a series of Saturday “Eagles Over The Confluence” events over the next two months.  The Lewis & Clark Visitor's center has viewing platforms at 50, 100 and 150 feet above the confluence of the Mississippi and Missouri rivers.
