Honor Flight Vets Rely on Burn the Point

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

Seventeen World War Two veterans will be riding in the 10th Burn the Point in downtown Billings.

Big Sky Honor Flight organizers will be carrying money pales through the parade to raise funds for the October flight. Organizer, Bill Kennedy, said they raised nearly $10,000, and the flight is still under funded by almost $50,000. Burn the Point organizer, Ron Duty said this year's parade has something for everyone. "It's really a great deal to see the people's appreciation and the cars. It's just a different feeling of everything, and the crowd coming to see it. It's something you don't get to see until that time of year. There's stuff that shows up that you get to see, and you don't get to see it until next year," Duty said.

Burn the Point started at 6:30 Friday night. It runs through downtown Billings. A car show will be held Saturday at MetraPark from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM. Admission is $2.00.
