If you want to see how Montanans celebrate the 4th of July, you need to head to Roundup for the 17th Annual Roundup Independence Days Extravaganza (also known as R.I.D.E). It's happening July 1 - 4.
There will be live music, parades, fireworks, kid-friendly activities, the MidWay West Carnival, Rodeo Roundup's PRCA Rodeo, and a family-friendly Top Shot Competition including pistol, rifle, archery, and cowboy fast draw. The annual Independence Day celebration has been a tradition in Roundup for nearly a century.
In addition to all of the other festivities, season 13 American Idol winner Caleb Johnson will get the party started on Friday, July 1. Caleb & the Ramblin' Saints will hit the stage at Roundup City Park at 7:00 p.m. on Friday.
Laine Hardy, season 17 American Idol winner will perform on Saturday, as well as Ben and Noel Haggard, sons of country music legend Merle Haggard.
There will also be fireworks, a Veterans' Parade, a golf scramble, a carnival, and more! If you and the family want to check out the Roundup Independence Days Extravaganza, you'll need a wristband.
