For some reason I always think of September as the start of fall, but frankly, that’s ridiculous. Early September consistently has some of the nicest weather of the year and there are some great events going on that will help keep your summer spirit going even though back-to-school sales are in full swing and we’ve almost entered the -ber months.
So keep summer going by roaming through Southwest Montana and hitting up some of these great events:
If you’re still looking for things to do this weekend, why not head over to Boulder for the Jefferson County Fair and Rodeo, and the Boulder Classic Car Show? The fair features everything a good fair should–4H exhibits, live music, a barn dance, and more.
Next weekend, the action is down in the Ennis area. the Ennis Fly Fishing and Outdoor Festival runs the 30th and 31st and features all things fly-fishing: casting clinics, tackle dealers, celebrity speakers, BBQ and much more. On the 31st, there is a Poker Ride (and Poker Walk for non-riders) over in Virginia City, which is a fantastic way to spend the day exploring the area.
On the 1st and 2nd, the summer festivities continue with the annual Helmville Rodeo, one of premier small-town NRA rodeos in the state.
The weekend after is jam packed with a Car Show in Townsend on the 6th, the Miners Union Picnic in Philipsburg on the 7, and then it’s back to Boulder for the Music and Arts Fest on the 7th and 8th.
So don’t be tricked into thinking that just because August is coming to a close, the fun is stopping, because we’re only just getting started.
