Big Hole Valley, 4th of July Celebration Fourth of July is a special time of year for all the United States, but not anywhere more so than here in the Big Hole Valley.

The morning is started off early with a flag raising ceremony at 6:15 AM, then a free pancake breakfast follows at Fetty’s on the Main Street, down town Wisdom. This year our Patriotic Speaker is Greg Fellows. Greg and his wife Chris are newcomers to Wisdom but both grew up in Montana Greg was a pilot flying all types of missions all over the world.

After breakfast, the locals get their horses, and tractors, and their buggies, and their kids, and all go out to enjoy the annual Wisdom Fourth of July Parade. During the parade much candy and other goodies are tossed to the crowds of children watching by the parade participants. A lot of people dress in red/white/and blue to honor old glory. The parade will start at 10:00 AM. Entry in the parade is free, so if you want to be in the parade meet behind Larry’s Automotive by 9:30 am.

After the parade we have a fund raiser Bar-b-que to benefit our local Volunteer Fire Departments and EMT/Ambulance crews. Hamburger's and hot dogs hot off the grill, along with many other side dishes served "potluck" style is sure to fill you up. The Bar-b-que will be held at the Masonic Temple, located just behind the Pintler Gas station. Cost is a donation to the Wisdom Volunteer Fire Department.

Returning this year is the Big Hole Valley Fireworks Celebration. The festivities will start at 8:00 PM at the Wisdom Airport, about a mile out of town on Hwy 278. Country music, a bon fire and a softball game will be part of the fun. Bring your own BBQ food items and beverages if you wish. The fireworks are scheduled to begin at dark (around 10:30 PM). For questions you can call Fetty’s at 406-689-3260. Please no personal fireworks at the event due to liability issues.
