This Weekend's Top 4 | June 10-12, 2022

June 9, 2022

As we hook you up with this weekend's top picks, I feel like we need to give an honorable mention shoutout. The Montana Firefighters Memorial Run, which takes place Friday, June 10, is the last of its kind, as the majority of the work on the memorial has been completed. So, even if you've not signed up, maybe help this dedicated team wrap up their fundraising efforts with a hoot, a holler, and a friendly slap on the back.

Following are our top 4 picks for the weekend, but you'll want to pop by the calendar to get the whole picture (spoiler alert: June is jam-packed with all kinds of goodness!). 

#1 Live Music in Billings

There is so much happening this weekend (and most weekends, if we're keeping it real) that we're just sending you to our page totally dedicated to the live music scene in Billings. Click on that Live Music box above and you'll be able to pick and choose your best, most magically musical path for the weekend.

So, pack up your blankets and chairs and bring the family out to Castle Rock Park for a showing of Sing 2!  

This evening is presented by Firefly Outdoor Movie Co. in conjunction with The West End Exchange Club along with title Sponsor TDS Fiber.
