Remember back in the day when there was always a Spring Fling carnival at the Fairgrounds each May? In fact if you’re really old school you might remember the Spring Fling being held all along Higgins downtown. You may not have noticed it’s absence over the past few years, but Missoula’s children sure have.

Back by popular demand, a May carnival at the Fairgrounds!

After we get through the Memorial Day Weekend, we can look forward to not only a short work week, but 4 days of fun at the fairgrounds. Here’s what’s in store.
