By BECKY GOODRICH

Fall is here… it’s time for hayrides, apple cider and old-fashioned family fun! Fort Missoula Regional Park invites kids and their families to the 17th Annual Fall Family Fest and Kaboom! Play Day on Saturday, October 21 from 1 p.m. to 4p.m.

Fall Family Fest is great fun for the whole family and includes wheelchair-accessible hayrides, arcade games and crafts for all ages, face painting, parachute and cooperative games, cider pressing, active games, Strider bikes, folf and much more.  The festival features live music with The Salamanders, and food and beverage vendors will be on hand.

As a nationally recognized “Playful City USA,” Missoula celebrates Kaboom! Play Day as part of Fall Family Fest to help build awareness for the importance of play and strengthen our community.  The suggested donation is $1 per person; proceeds benefit youth recreation programming.

Fall Family Fest is sponsored by U104.5, Missoula Broadcasting Co., the Montana Club and many more generous local businesses and organizations.
