After months of uncertainty, hospitality businesses feel relief with the park’s reopening in early June

Ever since Glacier National Park’s closure in March, businesses within and outside of its boundaries have sat on pins and needles, waiting for the governor and park superintendent to set a reopening date.

“We’ve been preparing for being able to open at any moment,” Holly DuMay, the director of sales and marketing at Izaak Walton Inn and Eddie’s Café and Mercantile. “We knew we weren’t going to have a lengthy notice.”

Once the park finally reopened on June 8, Eddie’s Café and Mercantile was ready to go, opening just a few weeks after its normal date of Memorial Day Weekend.

“It’s a huge relief that we’re opening as soon as we are,” DuMay said.

Eddie’s, which is operating with coronavirus precautions such as plastic screens and spaced-out tables, received a facelift this winter, with a completely remodeled restaurant, a full-service bar and to-go cocktails.

“You can take a cocktail to-go and just sit on the beach at Lake McDonald,” DuMay said. Read more…..

Fourth of July fireworks show canceled, arts festival still happening

 

The annual fireworks show over Whitefish Lake on the Fourth of July has been canceled.

The Whitefish Chamber of Commerce made the decision last week to cancel the event after failed attempts over the past month to relocate the show to a location that would allow for social distancing related to the COVID-19 pandemic. The event typically draws upwards of 5,000 people to City Beach.

Chamber Executive Director Kevin Gartland said the chamber has been working steadily to make the show happen, but it became apparent that it just wasn’t possible.

“In the current situation it just wasn’t feasible,” he said. “And all the alternatives we considered had flaws that just wouldn’t be possible to overcome.”

The annual event is sponsored by the chamber and supported through private donations.

Gartland said the chamber explored two other possible locations at Big Mountain Ranch and at Smith Fields, but both of those had challenges that couldn’t be overcome including that holding the fireworks show over land rather than the lake increased the cost up to $7,000.

“When fundraising for it, half our donors are private individuals on Whitefish Lake who contribute to the show to view it from their properties,” he said. “We didn’t want to dig ourselves into a big hole with the extra cost.”

The Fourth of July parades in both Kalispell and Bigfork have already been canceled. Read more…

Seeking a Safe Haven

Realtors have “never been busier” as out-of-area homebuyers flood the Flathead Valley

After spending eight years in Chicago, 46-year-old physician Robert Valleau grew tired of the city life.

He was burned out from the bar-and-restaurant, shopping-and-museum scene of Michigan Avenue, the explosive taxes and his box-sized apartment. He preferred fresh mountain air to bustling city streets. But most of all, he wanted to get away from people. To learn more…

You know, there’s more to Whitefish, Montana than just breathtaking scenery, a great ski hill, abundant wildlife and a spectacular alpine lake.  But there’s no ignoring the obvious … the #1 attraction that brings visitors to our city – the Great Outdoors – also fuels an active lifestyle for residents that is second to none.
