Less than 200 people call this sleepy little community home, but every Labor Day weekend it hosts the "World's Largest Small-Town Parade." At the wild and wooly Great Montana Sheep Drive—Montana's version of the Running of the Bulls—hundreds of sheep take to Reed Point's Main Street. But the sheep are just the headliners. The celebration begins in the morning with a pancake breakfast and includes a street fair, parade, street dance, log-sawing contest, food, and arts & crafts vendors.
Reed Point—once part of the Crow Indian Reservation—is a tiny community of about 300 people located along Interstate 90 on the Yellowstone River with the Beartooth Mountains to the south and the Crazy Mountains to the west. The Yellowstone River and the Indian Fort Fishing Access offer a boat ramp and a campground so you can float, fish and get away from it all. If you’re road-tripping through the region, it’s a great spot for a refreshing swim. Reed Point’s picturesque setting gives those passing through a sense of peace and tranquility.
This little community is the end of the road—or the river, as it were—for the annual Yellowstone Boat Float. Locals boaters and floaters put their rafts in the water in Livingston and float down to Indian Fort in Reed Point where they’re met with a live band, street dance, and food from the famous Waterhole Saloon.
