Laurel Food Fest is Saturday, June 4 from 11 am to 6 pm

If your family is anything like mine, we all have different tastes when it comes to our favorite foods. I like hot, spicy, savory things, preferably with meat. My spouse enjoys sweet treats. One kid loves Asian food. One doesn't eat chicken. When we're on the go and are forced to hit a drive-thru, we've been known to go to more than one restaurant, just to keep everyone happy. I know... it's pretty ridiculous.

This weekend, you can make everybody happy in one fun location at the Laurel Food Fest.

Eat your heart out at 14 different food vendors.

Billings has a vibrant food truck scene, and it seems like more food-loving entrepreneurs are throwing their chef hats into the ring each season. From delicious, smokey BBQ to homemade churros and gourmet corn dogs, there's a truck for every taste. Over a dozen of Billings' best will be serving up a smorgasbord of foods on Saturday from 11 am to 6 pm at 908 W. Main St in Laurel.

It's a fundraiser for the Laurel Activity and Recreation Complex.

After years of discussion, a serious effort is now underway for the development of a multi-use recreation complex in Laurel. Wood's Powr-Grip, a 50-year-old Laurel company that manufactures "innovative equipment which uses vacuum to lift, hold, and position nonporous materials" has generously donated ten acres of land for the construction of the envisioned recreation center. The company was recently honored by Governor Gianforte as the 2021 Montana Exporter of the Year and they frequently contribute to local charities and youth organizations.
