10th Annual Bigfork Rumble in the Bay

Hey Folks,

2 days left until the 10th Annual Rumble in the Bay. We have heard from a few people that a radio station in Missoula is reporting that our show was cancelled due to smoke. This is NOT TRUE!

The Car Show will be held on September 3rd as scheduled.  As of today, Friday, the wind is blowing the smoke out of Bigfork, the sun is shining and it’s a beautiful day.

Registrations are up this year – the Year of Mopar and we are expecting another great show of classic cars, trucks, and motorcycles.

See you there!

The Tall Pine is located in the Lake Hills Shopping Center, on Montana Highway 35.  The official address is 8111 MT Hwy 35, but if you park in the Bigfork Harvest Foods parking lot you’ll find the Tall Pine just behind…the Tall Pine Tree!

So plan to come along and continue the fun.  Folks will be there to talk about their cars and their adventures. Enjoy the food and drink and get a feel for our small town Montana living.
