The fun parody songs and a heavy dose of western humor brought laughter and smiles to the over 500 people who attended the free concert of Montana's Ringling 5. The performance was part of the concert series at Sapphire Lutheran Homes "Large Lawn" in Hamilton Friday, June 28. This is the 7th year for the community series and the Ringling 5 were the second feature of four Friday night concerts. Next week, July 5th, will feature the Tomcats out of Missoula at 7 p.m. Following the music (a little later when it's dark) a free fireworks show is planned. And the final concert brings a Beatles tribute band out of Las Vegas - Beatles For Sale. Sapphire Lutheran Homes also has a $5 barbeque before the Friday concerts at 6 p.m. Principal sponsors for the series this summer are Donaldson Brothers, Bitterroot Drug and Pigman Builders.

The Large Lawn will feature Shakespeare in the Parks August 22nd with Henry IV (Part 1), which is also free to public.
