We were beginning to think summer would never arrive! There is still snow in the mountains, and the rivers are running very high for July. Just two weeks ago our spring garden was in full bloom, bulbs and all! As a matter of fact, we’re still cutting beautiful bouquets of lilac for Pete’s sake! (The fragrance of the Korean lilac outside our back door today is absolutely intoxicating!) Yet we’re already into July, having experienced our first two consecutive weeks of warm weather.
With the rivers so high the fishing has not been very good so far, but August should be an angler’s paradise! Until then, there is plenty going on in Bozeman to keep people amused. Music on Main is every Thursday evening from 6:30 to 8:00 through August 18th. Many shops stay open late and Main Street closes to vehicle traffic at that time. In addition to the various bands that perform there are several planned activities for children and food vendors provide quick bites to be enjoyed in the streets.
Art Walks occur on the second Friday of the month through September from 6 to 8PM. Art galleries and businesses displaying artwork located along Main Street and at the Emerson Center for Arts and Culture stay open late. The galleries feature artists’ openings and receptions and often provide hors d’oeuvres and complimentary refreshments. Also, keep an eye out for local musicians playing music as your stroll Main Street in Downtown Bozeman.
