This year, 26 events have been scheduled from September 20 through October 28, and over 200 participants have attended events so far.
This Friday, October 7, National Manufacturing Day will be celebrated in Kalispell with Flathead Manufacturing Day and Series of Events, hosted by the Kalispell Chamber of Commerce.
Manufacturing Day is a celebration of modern manufacturing meant to inspire the next generation of manufacturers and dispel any common misconceptions about the industry being redundant, unsafe, low-paying, and non-technical.
Tours on Friday will begin at 10:00am and run throughout the day. All events are free and open to the public, though registration is strongly encouraged since many tours will not accept walk-ins. Interested individuals should reserve their space at http://www.mgfday.com or call the Kalispell Chamber at (406)758-2803.
