After a great brew and dinner at Tamarack's I made my way down to take in the "surf action". This was a kick watching folks surf a back flush river wave. Kudos to the folks for making something outta of nothing.

Caras Park was a great location for the Brewfest with lots of space for the vendors and tasters! If you've not attended the brewfest yet, make your reservations early. It's normally near the end of September.

We love to walk in this area. Have had trouble with bikers speeding through the area when little kids are playing in the park. I was taught to walk my bike in crowded areas but this does not appear to be the norm anymore.

The best time to be had in Caras Park is any downtown event (or wedding if you rent the venue). My daughter was married there, the ceremony on the stage and the reception under the tent. It was beautiful!

There is always something going on at Caras Park. Concerts, festivals, markets! Come and see the surfers on the "wave" in the river. Visit the Carousel. This is a place to really get a flavor for Missoula.
