Getting ready for the 4th in Butte, Montana
As we've noted before, Butte tends to get their celebrations started a bit early over some holidays. And others have been know to go a few days past as well. This 4th of July will fall on a Tuesday, which naturally means that by carefully using one sick day, you have a 4-day weekend. And there may be nothing more Butte, America than that. Here we are the Friday before the 4th and we're not even officially into July yet preparations for the big day are underway. Here are some of the telltale signs you'll see around town.
