When you think of a 'real' 4th of July celebration, there's probably a lot of fun events with family and friends.

It's becoming more difficult to find communities that still embrace all the fun stuff that makes the holiday a real celebration.

Fishing was the main character of the summer, but 4th of July in Ennis was the real star. GET A FULL LIST OF ENNIS, MONTANA 4TH OF JULY EVENTS HERE.
