Our biggest attraction is the Little Big Horn Battlefield National Park, just 13 miles away. During the end of June is the reenactment of the battle and many activities in town as well as food venders, jewelry venders, arts and crafts are held on Center Ave. The streets are blocked off and a Saturday night street dance is always a hit. All of Hardin get involved in this week long celebration. The local parade on Saturday is awesome.
