Sadly, Missoula will be without its annual 4th of July fireworks show at Southgate Mall. We just got word of an alternative you might really enjoy.

We are talking about a full day of family activities including a magnificent fireworks show to wrap it up! Our friends at the Seeley Lake Chamber of Commerce want to extend an invitation to you to be part of their annual 4th of July celebration this Monday.

Enjoy the beautiful scenery and a day jam packed with fun activities for all ages. From breakfast to a pig roast to a car show to live music to big booms over the water, the town of Seeley Lake is pulling out all the stops to make it the place to be on Independence Day.
