Night On The Missouri Remains Strong Draw
Wolf Point Chamber of Commerce and Agriculture director Nicole Miller said both nights sold out this weekend for the annual Night on the Missouri dining event on the old Lewis and Clark Bridge south of Wolf Point.
â€śWe had two great sold out nights,â€ť said Miller. â€śWe served 160 people each night. People attended from lots of surrounding communities: Poplar, Glasgow, Circle, Richey, Plentywood, to name a few. Darren Longhair was the DJ for the second year and did an awesome job.â€ť
Miller said the chamber was able to book Stillwater String Quartet from Billings to provide music for the semi-formal event. She said there were a large number of volunteers this year, a crucial element of all Chamber functions.
â€śThis event relies heavily on volunteers,â€ť Miller said.
Weather was good following record heat in the area. Responses from attendees were positive.
â€śYes, it was really fun and excellent food,â€ť Aimee Kirkland told the Northern Plains Independent following the event. Aimee attended with husband Jed.
Newcomer Lauri Handy said it was her first time. She attended courtesy employer Northeast Montana Health Services.
â€śThis was the first time I have attended this event,â€ť said Handy. â€śThe venue is unique and shows off the beauty of northeast Montana. We enjoyed the beautiful sunset and the rising of the harvest moon while enjoying a delicious meal under Montanaâ€™s big sky. I will definitely be back!â€ť
