The 2017 Montana State Fair "Keepin' It 406" was a banner year with revenues in excess of $1,745,000. The revenue produced by Montana State Fair in 2017 is more than any Montana State Fair since Cascade County resumed management of Montana ExpoPark in 2009. Hot weather did not discourage anyone from enjoying the delicious treats on Food Alley, a stroll through all the wonderful exhibits, an evening at the 3 Rivers Stage with the Nick Crawford Band, the strolling magician or Nerdy Noah, ice cream from the 4-H booth, a shopping opportunity, or an evening at a night show or rodeo.

Flooding in our county has historically been caused by rapid snowmelt combined with heavy rainfall in the Sun and Missouri River Basins as well as along with the Belt and Sand Coulee Creek Basins causing the Sand Coulee Creek, Belt Creek, Missouri River and the Sun River to leave their banks. Floodwaters can cover much of the county and are very dangerous. Even though they appear to move slowly (3 feet per second), a flood two feet deep can knock a man off his feet and float a car. Your property may be high enough that it has not flooded in the past. However, it can still be at risk for future flooding. Contact the County Floodplain Administrator at 454-6905 to determine if your property is in a floodplain.
