Let's Have Some Fun!



In the downtown area of Missoula, Montana, food courts are set up on certain days under a large tent.  This area is complete with picnic tables and almost any type of food you might want to order from Asian to Buffalo burgers.  There is also ice cream and a huge selection of quaffs, including lemonade shake-ups.  



There is a stage set up for the daily live entertainment. Bleachers accommodate those who want to sit and enjoy the music, while munching on their particular find among the vendors.
  

Just a little way from the food court is the Clark Fork river, where a group of young men were attempting to surf the rapids of the water.  No one was able to stand up very long.  The story is that someone was killed there, hitting his head on a rock, so the wave bares his name.

On the other side of the food court is a carousel.  All of the animals on the carousel have been created and decorated by local artists.  How long has it been since you rode one of these?

The playground area was also constructed locally, and is a good time for little ones to enjoy the climbing and swinging.  

Nothing like a day in the park, when there is so much available for every generation!

It's too hot here to enjoy our parks but I love taking grandkids there in the warm not cold wintertimes here. They love our park's carousel!

That surfing was definitely tricky, not sure why anyone would even try it.

Linda, what a fun day! I just don't enjoy anything when it's hot though -- definitely not a summer girl!

Looks a lovely event. Not so sure about the man trying to surf so close to those rocks.
Was wondering what Lemonade Shake-ups are, but will look it up on Google.

Have been trying to add you to my blog list but that doesn't seem to be working.....will try again next week.

What a beautiful day out and so colourful. I can remember as a small girl going to the circus and riding a blonde horse on the carousel. What fun, I might even try it now again. he,he The tents are nice to protect the people from the heat. I think I would enjoy this day very much. How interesting this post is.

We enjoy concerts, whether outside or inside.
I just wrote a post today about eating buffalo steak.
I guess I need to try a burger.
I also tried Kangaroo, which was my favorite.
