The unofficial kick off to summer in Billings is the last week of May when both the Downtown Billings Association's Alive After 5 and Townsquare Media's Fix At 6 kick off. Unfortunately, due to last week's rain, both were postponed. Alive After 5 which was supposed to be at Bin 119 last Thursday was moved to Wednesday July 3rd and The Fix at 6 which was supposed to be at The Grand Stand last Friday has been moved to Friday August 16th.

Fortunately Mother Nature seems like she will cooperate this week and both events (assuming the current weather forecasts are accurate) should go off without a hitch as both Thursday and Friday are predicted to be partly cloudy with a high of 79. This Thursday Alive After 5 will be at Andy's Bar featuring Rock Bottom Drifters & Jaded Ladies and the Fix @ 6 will be at the Granary and will feature the Buster Sparks Band.
