Big Sky State Games 2013 Opens

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS, Mont. -

The 28th Annual Big Sky State Games opened in the Magic City Friday. People, old and young, gathered at the Daylis Stadium for the Opening Ceremony Friday evening.

"We just want to do this for fun, try to do a personal best," said David Ellis, who brought along his family. "We've done some other races in town, but this is the first time for the State Games."

Some events already took place before the opening ceremony Friday. The weekend will also see more competitions, in what organizers call the largest state games, per capita, in the country.

"Seems pretty well organized, looking forward to watching the girls compete in Soccer," said Ellis. Her daughter will play against a Laurel team Saturday.

The opening ceremony featured a cheerleading performance, as well as taekwando demonstrations. It gave contestants, as well as other people, a break from the heat.

"A little hotter than I expected it to be," said David, who went on to say it was a great way nonetheless to get out, and enjoy the day. "Seems like a nice way for families to get together, friends, come out, compete, try your best. A good event for the community."
