I’m sure most of you remember the Cow Parade several years ago: life-size (or more!) cows made of various materials were decorated by artists and placed on display in various cities. I purchased a few of the tiny collectibles! The Cow Parade is still going, by the way.
Well, now comes the Montana version: the Bison Parade! Actually, it’s called the Buffalo Hunt. Many decorated bison will be on display in various venues, and will eventually be sold at auction to benefit the C.M. Russell Museum. You can view them all in this GF Tribune gallery. The next public viewing will be in a parade at 5:30 p.m. on June 2 on Central Avenue. Then they will be displayed throughout the city at various locations until Sept. 10 (including at the Montana State Fair!), which is when they will be sold at auction at Montana ExpoPark.
