Bigfork business rebounds from COVID-19 with help from state grant

BIGFORK — Bigfork during the summer is usually full of tourists and people enjoying Flathead Lake but one restaurant would have closed this past summer if not for state-funded coronavirus grants.

“Bigfork is right at the north end of the lake and we have The Playhouse right beside the restaurant so that’s usually full — and then we’re full in the restaurant. But that didn’t really happen this year,” said Aaron Killian, the owner and chef at Showtyme Act II.
