Okay party people. I wish this blog update was about all the fabulous activities that I did in Western Montana since we visited last. But to be honest, it’s not. And since you don’t want to hear about me organizing my closet, let’s move on to something that’s worth talking about it.

Like the fact that it’s Labor Day weekend! The last official weekend of summer! So you know what that means. Time to get out and work this last weekend for all it’s worth.

On this long weekend, here are a few places that are prime for the last hurrah of summer…

1: The Ravalli County Fair is in the Bitterroot Valley and has a parade, live entertainment, rodeo and bull-a-rama.

2: Griz football! The season opener for the Montana boys is tomorrow afternoon…which means thousands of people filling Washington-Grizzly stadium decked in maroon and plenty of cheering!

3: The Sanders County Fair in Plains is a “County Fair with a Western Flair.” In addition to all the standard fair offerings, there’s
also a rodeo and demolition derby. Plus, cowboys.

4. Live music at the Belton Chalet. Danny McIntosh and his sweet guitar and voice will be filling the historic chalet in West Glacier Saturday night at 6 PM. A perfect reason (like you or I need one) to head to Glacier.

Whatever you fancy, let’s all send summer out in style. After all, she has been good to us.
