Broadside advertising the Fourth of July celebrations of Wolf Point, Montana, a small town on the northeastern side of the state. The celebrations included a "Big Indian and Cowboy Parade," a baseball game, a dinner, horse races, contests, and a dance. The list of games and contests includes a fifty yard race for fat men, a wheelbarrow race, a sack race, and a greased pig, among others, as well as "all kinds of games and contests by Indians." First place prizes ranged from 99 cents to five dollars. Interestingly, fireworks were verboten: "No fire crackers allowed, our motto safe and sane Fourth." An ephemeral memorial from this little Montana town.
