Picturesque Big Fork Montana has a population of about 4,200 and is located along the Flathead River. This state stands out across the nation as fierce defenders of freedom and the 4th of July here is a really really big deal! (plus with the endless winters, summer events are very popular)
This year’s independence celebration enjoyed clear blue skies and radiant sunshine making is considerably warmer than these north westerners are used to adding yet even more frivolity.
All roads leading to town were deep in traffic and the star spangled crowds poured in to line up along the quaint downtown streets. The mood jubilant. Stars and strips and flags as far as the eye could see.
Parking as close as possible still left us a pretty lengthy walk into town. As we crossed the river on a one lane, one car at a time bridge, the parade route came clear and we settled in for a wonderful small town America masterpiece.
We may have our differences but we’re all Americans and we LOVE our FREEDOM!
Thank you Bigfork! It was an honor.
Hope you enjoy these pictures half as much as I enjoyed taking them.
