Ahead of Saturday’s Symphony Under the Stars, members of the public gathered for the annual “blanket run” Friday to get a prime spot for the event.
The blanket run started at 3 p.m. on Friday for those who made a $5 donation to the Boy Scouts. Even though the run didn’t start until 3 p.m., some people were in line as early as 10 a.m. They waited at the top of Guadalupe Hill, or right on the Carroll College field to grab their spots.
“We paid our nephew to come out and sit here early,” said John Rehbein with Bridge Assembly church.
Rehbein and his crew were the first in one of four lines on Carroll’s field. He said he’s been coming to the symphony as long as he can remember, and arrived to wait in line around 12 p.m. on Friday.
“It’s a blast. It’s about the only event in Helena that’s like this where everyone comes out,” Rehbein said.
