The Missoula Downtown Association is hosting a Winter Brew-fest Fundraiser for Caras Park in the historic Missoula Mercantile Building. Executive Director Linda McCarthy says they are trying to raise half a million dollars for park improvements. Some of the improvements include construction of a new band shell, replacing the canopy, adding a new sound system,  electrical system and new turf. The event features live entertainment, beer, wine and food. Entrance is $10 and runs from 1 pm to 7 pm this Saturday.
