My Town Monday Link Up

My Town Monday Link-up,
Nothing Fancy, just share a post about where you live.
I started this because I am not too fond of where we are living in Montana, it’s a very nice place to visit, I just don’t want to live here.
In effort to find more cool things about Montana I am going to periodically do this when I have something cool to share about the place I am currently calling Home.

My Town Monday: Montana Folk Festival 

The Montana Folk Felstival was once part of the National Folk festival, which was hosted by Butte in 2008-10, it was so much fun and did so well that when the National festival moved on Montana decided to make their own!

We came down for the festival our first year in Montana, so 2010, it was really hot so we had some snacks and then went back to Helena.
This year the weather was amazing, Saturday we spent most of the day walking around and having festival food, exploring the tents, and eating the food.
There is a lot more going on than just music, there are lots of tents where people are selling things, and lots of tents set up to educate people about things in Montana. They have special area for kids, that had a small 4H petting zoo, and different booths teaching about wildlife and Native Americans.

To be completely honest, I was there for the fair food and beer.
There is something I just love about sitting outside, drinking a cold draft beer, and eating a bratwurst and fresh cut curly fries.
