Alive After Five Returns

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

With no severe weather in the forecast Thursday, Downtown Billings was finally able to come alive for its summer concert series.

Rock band The Clintons took the stage in Thursday's "Alive After 5", which was held outside the Billings Depot. Two Alive After 5 events, one on May 30th and the one last week, were postponed due to severe weather, and will take place on July 3rd and September 5th.

Hundreds of people came out for the music, along with some refreshments and some fun. The very warm temperatures didn't seem to affect people's mood.

"I was in the wind all day earlier, and it was cold, so I'm enjoying the heat," said Jon Lowry.

"Love the heat. Makes the drinks go down a little bit better!" said Randall Rice.

Next week's Alive After 5, according to the organizer's website, will feature the band "Funk In The Trunk" at Cafe Italia.

    Much of northwest Wyoming is a high desert, but most people don’t use rain barrels to conserve water. Cody’s Nature Conservancy wants to change that, with a rain barrel auction at its second annual Wild West Riverfest in Cody.

    Can you imagine building a hotel by stacking one floor on top of another? That’s what’s happening in Yellowstone. The Park’s lodging concessionaire, Xanterra, tore out hundreds of old cabins in Canyon Village, and started construction this summer on five new lodges to replace them. The new lodges are actually modular jigsaw puzzles.
