Montana State Parks is celebrating their 75th anniversary this year.

Various state parks across Montana are celebrating in their own individual ways throughout the year, and that includes Chief Plenty Coups State Park in Pryor.

The park, named after the popular Crow chief, is just 33 miles south of Billings and will be commemorating the anniversary this Sunday, from 11a.m. to 4p.m. with tribal games, demonstrations and even free Subway sandwiches.

“Hopefully everyone will come out Sunday, take part in the games, house tours and take part in the free Subway sandwiches for the first 100 people that take part in visiting Chief Plenty Coups State Park,” says Chief Plenty Coups State Park Manager, Chris Dantic.

If you are not able to make the celebration this Sunday, the park is open year round and offers traditional Crow culture programs free of charge every Friday from 1p.m. until 3p.m.
