Welcome to Great Falls Montana in September.
Summer seems like it got started a few weeks ago, and now here we are on September 1st and we are not even breaking 70 degrees. The weatherman says it will be cool the next few days with lows around 44. Nice warm weather should return by Sunday.
With it being Labor Day Weekend many families are looking forward to a few days off and maybe a final camping or boating trip. With gas prices high, many boaters might just choose to utilize our two rivers flowing through town.
The Sun River and the Missouri River meet at Great Falls and with one of our dams just upstream it creates a nice fairly deep river for Boating, Skiing, riding Personal Water Craft and even just floating on a tube. Broadwater Bay is the most popular spot to launch your water toys and the parking has just recently been expanded to handle more vehicles with boat trailers.
Some folks may choose to combine the camping and boating and just launch their RV at Broadwater bay.

However you choose to enjoy the long weekend, please play it safe.
