2.   What is the weather like at the Little Bighorn Reenactment?

Wonderful!  The high temperatures in June normally range from the upper 70s to 90s.  Most days are dry and clear.  The temperature at night is comfortable, and routinely dips into the upper 50s, but can be cooler on occasion.  With most days filled with beautiful weather, the views of the valley and the surrounding mountains are consistently spectacular. It may be raining, windy, or sunny; so bring sunscreen, maybe a hat and windbreaker.

Feel free to interact with re-enactors and tour the vendor tents, Indian tepees, and (with permission) the cavalry camps.  Some re-enactments do not allow photographs or video cameras, but WE believe this re-enactment is for you - so bring your cameras!!
