    This FREE summer kiddie rodeo is on Saturday, August 13, 2011 at 11am. The best part is the fact that it is free and keeps kids entertained by doing events such as Stick Horse Barrel Racing, Pony Rides, Dummy Roping, and the best yet--PRIZES!

    Tours

    by Dymphna1 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There is a tour company in Billings called Montana Fun Adventures. They do local tours and seasonal tours. Then there are a few that stretch out over longer distances to area events and places.

    I took their Ghost Tour and had a good time on it. It was $21 and was about 1 hour & 20 minutes long. It narrated by a retired librarian Karen Stevens, who has written a couple of books, one being "Haunted Montana", and a second ghost story book ready to go to print. As with most librarians, she was a wealth of knowledge. I learned a great deal about the history of Billings on the tour. We did get to stop at two different places known for their ghosts, the Depot and the room in the Dude Rancher Hotel that is known for a ghost or two.

    I have added to several places I already had up about the ghosts spoken about on the tour. BOO

    Farmer's Market

    by Dymphna1 Written Sep 2, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On Saturday Mornings there is a big farmer's market held. People bring produce from all over to sell and it is a good time. There are musicians who play in the streets. There was a clown making balloons for children when I was there last time.

    I really like the Hooterite booths because they sell food that is grown without all of the additives. The chickens do not have hormones or antibiotics. This is good for not getting cancer and especially good for small girls. Hormones that are added to animals make little girls mature earlier than they should. My grandfather knew this back in the 60's and 70's and refused to use it in his cattle, as he did not want to be part of the problem.

    Gambling

    Gambling is legal in Montana. You can find poker games and casinos all over. You can find a poker game in several different bars and casinos around the area - such as at Doc & Eddies. All bars have a section of machines to play. Personally I do not recommend any of the Lucky Lil's. With the way they treat employees - I don't trust them to be all that honest about the machines.

    Zoo Montana

    The zoo is pretty cool, it's really spread out and the animals appear to like it too. They have a petting area for kids with chickens, goats, ponys, and what appered to be the family dog and cat! They have alot of different vegitation if your not into the animals....botanical gardens, exotic trees and a diverse selection of flowers and shrubs. They give you a map when you walk in with where all the attractions are, otherwise you'd walk in circles all day!! All in all it's pretty fun and you get good exersize walking around. Check it out!!

    While there are a multitude of things to see and do in and around Billings - the one thing that should be experienced is the Beartooth Highway. The start of the highway is a pleasant 60 to 90 minute drive south of Billings - head towards Red Lodge. Then begin your climb up the mountains on Highway 212. The view from the summit of the pass is truly spectacular. But the highway is only open from Memorial Day through sometime in October.

    From Billings you are about an hour drive from the Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument. If you are interested in history it is worth visiting.
    The Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument is the site of Custer's famous 'last stand'. You can learn about the battle as you take a tour.
