Ales for Trails Moves to Radisson Hotel
You can rain on some guy’s parade, just don’t rain on their beer. Ales for Trails, a music and beer expo benefiting Billings TrailNet, will move indoors this evening, due to inclement weather. Ordinarily held in Dehler Park, the event will be held this year at the convention center’s Radisson Hotel on Midland Road. Trailnet Executive Director Kristi Drake said the decision was made Thursday morning to move the fundraising event.
Musicians and vendors with electronic equipment would have potentially faced cold and wet conditions– not to mention the chance of electrocution or pneumonia– as the National Weather Service forecast high temperatures in the low 40s and an 80-percent chance of rain. Drake said the event will go on just as planned, but within the cozy confines of a roof. Taxi vouchers and dedicated Uber cars will be available.
