4th of July activities
Posted by Sarrie (+78) 7 years ago
Last year was my first 4th of July here in Miles City and I had to work. This year I have off! So what activities are there to do? Parades? Anything besides the fireworks show in the evening?

Getting involved would be the point of me asking. But being new to the area I don't know where to start. Since the only 2 responses I got on here weren't helpful I guess I'll look elsewhere for how to get involved.

Check at Great Grains. Scott may be able to point you in the right direction to get involved.

Sarrie,
Sorry you didn't receive much help here. The 4th of July for decades consisted of only fireworks. A few years back a group of people decided to make it something special. The 4th of July parade was born!

Unfortunately for the whole city of Miles City, Gene Larson, one of the people who made this such a special day, is in hospice and no longer able to help. He used to do the postings on here about what was happening, reminding people of deadlines for entries, etc.

I know it would make Gene happy to know that new people like you are stepping forward and asking how to be involved. Here is the link to the Miles City Chamber Facebook page. You might like their page as they post local activities.

Enjoy your 4th of July in Miles City!

Thank you both so much. I will definitely call and ask. And go to the widow. I appreciate the help.

Yes there is a 4th of July parade on the 4th.
Then after the parade is a hamburger BBQ with all proceeds
going to Wake up and Lace Up.

Every penny of Wake Up and Lace up stay in the local community
and help people in need.
