FSB Car Show headlines busy weekend in Malta


The wildest weekend of the year - with the crown jewel being the First State Bank of Malta Car Show - hits Phillips County this weekend with poker and color runs, carnivals, and the season-opening event for Phillips County Motorsports at the Hi-Line Dragstrip.

"It's always such a fun, event-filled weekend," First State Banks Terry Skones said. "And it looks like it will be another sunshine-filled event on Saturday."

Ahead of Saturday's car show - with registration starting at 9 a.m. and show running from until 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. when the awards ceremony is held in Veteran's Memorial Park - are the Northwest Realty & Auction Grand Opening and the Car Show Poker Run. Registration for the Poker Run is 7 p.m. in the First State Bank parking lot. Across the street in Malta, at Stockman Terrace, Northwest Realty & Auction has invited the public to celebrate their official grand opening with live music provided by Band Flansburg, a four-man group which plays both country and rock music. The grand opening will also feature Indian tacos, yard games and drawings, and door prizes. Everyone is invited to this family-friendly event.

The Phillips County Library will also be holding their annual used book sale which starts on Friday at 1 p.m. and goes until 6 p.m. and then picks back up on Saturday at 10 a.m. and runs until 2 p.m. in the library's basement.

Action on Saturday in Malta opens with this year's Malta Parks and Rec Color Run (see this week's Sports page for more information) and Art's Furniture and Carpet will be having a 1-day sale - billed "The Sale of the Year" - on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The First State Bank of Malta Car Show gets underway at 11 a.m. and the streets and Veteran's park will feature local businesses and vendors with goods for sale. As in year's past, several categories of vehicles will be on display and at the 2 p.m. award ceremony, awards for Top Judged, Peoples Choice for car, motorcycle and tractor, Longest Distance, and the Darryl Seely Memorial Award for Best Truck will receive trophies.

Following the awards will be the Test and Tune at the Hi-Line Dragstrip ahead of Sunday's Phillips County Motorsports drag races, the first of the 2019 season (see this week's sports page for more information.)

The capper to the action on Saturday night will be KillEagle Production's "Fight for Our Future II" Mixed Martial Arts fights at the Milk River Pavilion.

With at least 10 fights on the night, all the proceeds from the "Fight For Our Future" event will go to families staying at the Ronald McDonald House in Seattle, Wash.

Indian Tacos will be for sale and served by the Poplar Indian Days Ladies and the Mint Bar will be selling adult beverages (ID required). Single tickets for the event are $20 in advance, $25 at the door and cage-side tables are available for large groups, just give KillEagle a call at 406-399-6580 for more information or with questions.
