This weekend is a big weekend in Fort Benton Montana.  It's the 111th Chouteau County Fair, and if you have never been, you better get out there this weekend to experience this small town throwing a huge party.  This celebration has so much to offer that it takes up more than weekend, there are 4 days of great activities, shows, carnival rides, tractor pulls, demolition derby, and live music.

Due to the extreme heat, for the safety of the animals, the Pig Wrestling was canceled Thursday.  Fun was still happening with the carnival rides, vendors, exhibits, games, and more.  Take advantage of all this fun, all weekend long.
