Are you ready for the weekend? I know I am! It’s the first weekend in March and this touch of Spring weather has me excited to be out and about.
If you’re ready to get out there too, but wondering what there is to do, here is our Weekend Top 5 to give you some ideas.
#1 Home Improvement Show at MetraPark Expo Center and Montana Pavilion

One of the best things about this event is that it’s free! Yep, $0 for expert advice on siding, decking, home decor, lighting, bath fixtures, lawn care, home spas and more.
If you’re a DIYer you’re sure to get some great ideas to improve your indoor and outdoor space this Spring; or if you’re like me, you’ll get those ideas but also some business cards of folks who can make it happen.
Last year there were over 650 exhibits so you may want to block off your whole Saturday or pop in several days this weekend.
- Friday, March 5: Noon - 8pm
- Saturday, March 6: 9am - 6pm
- Sunday, March 7: 10am - 5pm

#4 Live Music at Yellowstone Cellars & Winery
What’s better than live music on the weekends? Live music with local wines that’s what!
This family owned and run winery is our only local winery and they have a lot to offer. Sample a few wines to discover your favorite, then enjoy a glass or a bottle with some friends. (Children accompanied by adults are also welcome.)
If you're feeling hungry, they offer a selection of gourmet cheeses, deli meats and crackers as well as, brie plates, pizzas and flatbreads so you can turn this into a dinner date too.
The winery opens at 1pm daily so head over early and get a good seat before the music starts.

#5 Learn About Hosting a Foreign Exchange Student at Asylum Distillery

Meet our area representative and learn about the impact of hosting an exchange student.
Ask your questions, enjoy a cocktail and consider signing up to become a volunteer host family for the 2020-’21 school year. It’s an opportunity to “influence a young adult’s life, change worldviews and make dreams come true.”
