BILLINGS- If you happen to be headed to the Billings area this weekend, there’s a new opportunity to take in a bunch of history and have fun at the same time.
It’s a new celebration at Pompeys Pillar, the place where Captain William Clark carved his signature, in sandstone, in 1806.
The very first Fall Festival starts at 7 a.m. Saturday with a bird walk.
A 5K cross country run on the monument grounds starts at 8:30.
A pancake breakfast will follow at 10 a.m.
Dancers, poets, musicians, and a corn maze will make up the day’s festivities.
Pompeys Pillar National Moment is east of Billings on Highway 312 near Interstate 94.
Admission is free Saturday, and the Fall Festival runs until 4 p.m.
