Last year, the Ravalli County Fair decided to add an hour of music before every evening's rodeo events. They added a stage at the south end of the main arena and had some good comments.

So, this year, they added more lighting, and booked three great performances.

If you missed last night, you missed the great show that Pinegrass brought to the stage. But not to worry! Tonight, the stage will feature the music of the late Patsy Cline. That critically acclaimed tribute show starts at 5:30 p.m.

Then, Saturday night, the valley's own Big Sky Mudflaps will have you snapping your fingers and tapping your toes with a show that starts at 5 p.m.

The grandstand activities are included with your admission tickets. Just walk right in and grab a seat. Bring a blanket in case the weather gets a little chilly. Plus, it's softer to sit on. You won't even notice the forest fire smoke as you sit under the grandstand roof.

And, of course, that music just leads into a great evening of NRA Rodeo each night. The Ravalli County Fair just keeps getting better and better!
