It’s that time of year again, where chainsaws rev, a moose disappears, trees fall, and buildings rise. Begun in 1915, the Foresters’ Ball is a traditional swing dance with live music designed to raise scholarship funds for students at the University of Montana. Students spend a week building an 1800′s logging town, complete with chow hall, chapel, jail, “saloon” (serving soda), slide, and one of the biggest dance floors in Montana. Live music and swing dancing are the name of the game. A beer garden will be offered from 7-11p each night as well.
