In spite of a brisk gale force wind and temps in the high sixties, Big Timber managed to pull off another Sweet Grass Fest today. Small town USA at its finest. There was something for everyone—the local sheriff’s department allowed themselves to be dunked into what had to be icy water by folks throwing balls at the drop lever. A “bouncy house” was erected for the children, there were food and craft vendors plus a huge car show and parade. At one of the local bars there was a bloody mary bar and music later in the afternoon. Proceeds from the dunking booth and bouncy house went to our local cancer alliance.
Town was crowded and we visited with lots of friends and neighbors.
There were food vendors but the wind was blowing so hard and there was little seating so the cowboy and I retreated to one of the local restaurants for lunch. By the time we finished in the crowded restaurant, it was time for the parade. We found a sunny spot a little out of the wind and enjoyed!
Emmi stayed with Nat and after the festivities we spent some time visiting with him. A great day in Montana!
