Summer in Montana can be a lot of fun, especially in a small town.  Have you ever been to Whoop Up in Conrad, The Augusta Rodeo or Dutton Fun Days?  Nobody does fun like a small town.

I thought it would be cool to highlight a couple of cool small town events that are just around the corner, and in completely different parts of the state.
