Lewis and Clark Celebrated in Great Falls

By Linda Tancs

In 1804 President Thomas Jefferson sent Meriwether Lewis and William Clark on an expedition across the Louisiana Territory to find the River of the West. Along the way, in modern-day Montana, the pair managed to enter negotiations with native tribes, search out sites for trading posts and forts, and maintain data on the plants, animals, and scenic resources along their journey. No wonder, then, that Montana takes great pride in celebrating the captains’ legendary accomplishments with a festival each year on the banks of the Missouri River in Great Falls. This year’s event, from 25 to 27 June, includes a kick-off with Mission Mountain Wood Band, followed by such events as a Native American art show, Lewis & Clark-era encampment, and Missouri River float trips. Your adventure awaits.
