Stevensville Will Celebrate with 104th Creamery Picnic
The weekend is packed with fun in Stevensville with the annual Creamery Picnic Friday and Saturday.
The local creamery burned down 104 years ago and the town helped quickly build a new one, which led to the first picnic, with free ice cream for the town.
This year, the free ice cream will be for the kids at noon Saturday, until they run out of ice cream cups. But there is much more to enjoy.
Friday, the Kiddie parade will be at 6:30 p.m., starting from Veteran's Park on the north end of Main. The Family Fun Dance will be with Nashville 406.
Saturday, the Masonic Temple at 3rd and Church will have their Pancake Breakfast from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m.
The Grand Parade will be on Main Street at 11 a.m. and the runners will attack the Milk Run at 12:30 p.m. Guided tours of St. Mary's Mission will be from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. The All Valley Fire Department Challenge and Keg Shoot will start at 2 p.m.
Music during the day will be Pinegrass, Mudslide Charley and the Tom Cats. The teen dance at 8 p.m. will be next to Valley Drug and Family Fun Dance Saturday night at 8:30 p.m. will feature Shane Clouse.
Both Friday and Saturday, kids games, food and crafts booths, the Montana State BBQ competition and the Creamery Picnic Brew Fest will be going on.
Also, there are historic home tours, a book sale at the North Valley Public Library and homemade pies at the Senior Center.
