The popular "Antiques Roadshow" PBS program will be recorded June 26 in Billings as scheduled, despite recent tornado damage to part of MetraPark, where the event will be held.

The event can go on as planned because of fast and efficient clean-up by MetraPark staff, according to Lisa Titus, MontanaPBS development director.

Titus said that tickets holders should enter MetraPark using the 4th Avenue entrance. The event entrance is the Montana Pavilion. Ticket holders who need to use a drop-off area prior to parking should use the area in front of the Montana Pavilion.

Ticket holders who arrive more than 30 minutes before the entrance time printed on their tickets cannot be accommodated, Titus said. If they arrive earlier, they may be asked to wait outdoors. The event is sold out and no tickets will be available at the door.

Part adventure, part history lesson and part treasure hunt, "Antiques Roadshow" is seen by almost 10 million viewers each week. In each episode, specialists from the country's leading auction houses and independent dealers from across the nation offer free appraisals of antiques and collectibles.
