Hitting a half century of fun and festivities, the Belgrade's Fall Festival offers something for everyone, according to organizers.
Following Friday's Homecoming festivities, the festival kicks into action on Saturday, Sept. 14 at 7 a.m. with a pancake breakfast and continues through the day.
Organizers are hard at work and say festival-goers can expect some great music, food and a fun parade.
Also featured will be the Belgrade High School homecoming and a handful of former students who will be celebrating their 60th high school reunion.
The Belgrade Fall Festival is a tradition celebrating Montana's rich agricultural history.
"You know the farmers and ranchers worked hard all summer long and they never got to town so fall festival was a time where they could spiff up and come to town and celebrate the end of harvest," said Debra Youngberg, Belgrade Chamber Executive Director. "It just climaxed from there. It used to be a town potluck and there was a parade and it was really special but it's just grown so much and it's something that people look forward to all year long."
