Tour De Fleur

Join us for the second year of our women’s bicycling event—the Tour de Fleur! Developed by Billings TrailNet, the Tour de Fleur is a ride to celebrate women, flowers and the joy of bicycling.

Women and girls of all ages are invited to grab their bikes and join the fun on Sunday, April 30. The pre-ride activities and bike decorating begins at noon. Flowers will be on hand for bicycle decorating, and an easy 3-mile ride begins at 1 p.m. The ride begins and ends at The Shops at Shiloh Crossing. There will be free mimosas, food, music, a goodie bag and discounts to the shops supporting this event, including Bottega, Neecee’s, Scout & Molly’s, Bumps & Bundles and Simply Wine.

This event is designed to empower mothers, sisters, daughters and friends to enjoy riding bicycles on the streets of Billings, and provides a much-needed network for women to meet, ride and pedal side by side to the finish line where they will be showered with flowers.

Proceeds from the Tour de Fleur benefit the advancement of the trails and bikeways in our community. BillingsTrailNet.org

A Wild Affair

Plans are being made for a fun and entertaining night at ZooMontana. A Wild Affair will be held at the Zoo this year under the EEC ZooPavilion. During social time, guests will stroll through the zoo while enjoying appetizers, drinks, a silent auction and, of course, special animal encounters. Dinner and a live auction will follow at 7 p.m.

A Wild Affair is ZooMontana’s largest fundraiser, and we invite you to be a part of it! This wonderful evening has kick-started many projects at the zoo such as the amazing plaza playground, the outreach van and the ZooPavilion. This year’s selected project is the much-needed and anticipated paving of the parking lot. ZooMontana.org.
