It’s the eighth year of this event, sponsored by Albertsons and Safeway. Last year nearly 500 people attended throughout the day, organizers said. There will be live music, including bagpipers, several emergency response vehicles, including three helicopters landing in the parking lot, said Eric Dowell, store manager of Safeway.

Miss Montana Faith Johnson will sing the national anthem. There will also be six food trucks on scene all day.

There will be a couple of memorial boxes from Honor Defined, a team of service members, given to two first responders.
