“What's not to love? In the heart of downtown Missoula, Caras Park is your go-to place for local festivals, including weekly standbys: - Wednesday 11am-2pm "Out to Lunch": food trucks, music, and family activities. - Thursday 5:30pm - 8:30pm: Same as Out to Lunch but the dinner edition. - Saturday morning farmers market: 8am - 1pm: Local farmers, food, and music. This is a local classic. ”
