When the Fourth of July rolls around, you can usually depend on a ton of different events happening around town and different ways to celebrate. In 2020, things aren't exactly playing out that way - thanks to the ongoing pandemic, a lot of the usual events are either cancelled or severely changed (like how the fireworks at Fourth Fest will still go on, but with no crowd or festivities surrounding them).

So it's always nice to hear about something that IS happening - it's the 4th annual Independence Day Camp at Fort Missoula! It looks like it'll have a great mix of ways to celebrate July 4th, and will even feature a public reading of the Declaration of Independence.

Here's the info from their Facebook event page:
