The open air dance hall "Cottonwood Grove Dance Pavillion"  Opened for business Saturday May 20th, 1939.  Cottonwood Grove was opened under the management of Ray Anderson and Walter Kennedy who promised to "secure the best musical talent available and offer every courtesy available to the dancing public".  According to the Piute County News (published in Marysvale, Utah) dated May 19th, 1939 they were "expecting and preparing to entertain a record crowd at the opening dance and on every Saturday night throughout the season".  The proprietors later added roller skating to the offering.   As we all know the dance hall has been host to many dances and community events.   Most recently the dance hall has become host to the world famous "Fish Rodeo".  If you haven't watched 200 kids try to catch fish with their bare hands in 6" of water, it's well worth the drive on the 24th of July.
