The annual Montana Agri-Trade Exposition or MATE Show starts Thursday at MetraPark. This is the 38th year for the event. Along with all the agricultural aspects of the show there's also a Home and Health Expo. It's billed as the largest agricultural trade show event. General Manager of the NILE, Jennifer Noble, says last year about 14,000 people attended the three-day event. She says this year it's bigger and better, "We've got some 600 vendors on site, everything from John Deere Implements to tractors to home décor and home design so we've got a wide variety of items for each and every individual that comes on down to the show."

The show runs from 10 AM to 6 PM Thursday and Friday and 10 AM to 5 PM on Saturday. It's free if you pick up tickets ahead of time at First Interstate Bank and from the companies that are vendors at the show, at the door tickets are $7.00.
