fourth of July

4th of July 5K Winners

For Big Sky, it was a weird July 4.There were no fireworks throughout Big Sky due to the Big Fire District fire ban put in place before the weekend. The weekend truly was like no other. However, one sense of normalcy for the community was the July 4 5K fun run.

From Normandy to Ennis

Among the 24,000 American, British and Canadian troops who landed at Normandy Beach on D-Day, June 6, 1944, were scores of Montanans. They included ranch kids from places like Choteau, Geyser and Sand Coulee. Thankfully, many made it back home and lived long lives.

A Dark Fourth

The past few weeks have held uncertainty regarding the legality of using fireworks, but both counties making up Big Sky concluded on Wednesday, June 30, to ban all fireworks.

Get ready to run

Ready, set, go! The July 4 5K run is back in person this Sunday on July 4. Like many things in 2020 the 5K run put on by the BSCO was virtual last year. This year it is back on at the Big Sky Community Park. All proceeds will go towards helping the BSCO’s efforts to improve our community.

Out with a bang

As Fourth of July approaches during this historically hot and dry June, everyone is concerned about fireworks, especially in Big Sky and West Yellowstone.

Steady rise in COVID cases

A holiday famous for gatherings, July 4th is being greeted by steadily growing COVID-19 cases in Gallatin County. The five days prior to Wednesday’s press call presented five new cases in West Yellowstone, six new cases in Big Sky and 38 cases in the Gallatin Valley.
