The Fourth of July pontoon parade on the Swan River in Bigfork will celebrate its fifth year. New this year will be a prize for the most decorated boat. Organizers Olivia Garvey, Nancy Overby and Jutte Hartwell wanted to “perk it up” this year and will be awarding a trophy for the most patriotic pontoon in the free-to-enter contest.
Spectators can head to The Nest on Swan River in Bigfork to watch the parade at 5:30 p.m. sharp. Pontoons will head upriver for a few miles and retreat back down. Garvey says there are usually kayaks and paddleboards out on the water, too, although they are not eligible to be in the contest.
Cup of Joe will be performing at The Nest.
