Missoula Food Bank is looking for volunteers to help at this event next weekend. Community FirstCare is sponsoring the event with a first aid tent, but they need additional assistance for a variety of tasks. If you can volunteer, please sign-up online.
Come one, come all to the 2nd annual MISSOULA UNDER CONSTRUCTION! Where KIDS DRIVE the BIG RIGS! (yes, seriously!!)
Drive a forklift, operate a bulldozer & so much more at this one-day fun-stravaganza! Visit all kinds of awesome builders and doers in the “When I Grow Up Tent.” What’s it like to be an electrician? A plumber? A carpenter? Get your hands on activities and get a taste of the trades.
Tickets: $5 per person for children & adults. Kids 2 years old and younger are free. Tickets are available for purchase online at https://bit.ly/2Xmf3dY or via cash, check, or credit card at Missoula Food Bank & Community Center (1720 Wyoming St) during open hours. Tickets will also be available at the door on the day of the event. Cash, check or card accepted at the door.
Food & Amenities: Our friends from Clove Cart Pizza, Baskin’ Robbins, Covered Wagon Hot Dogs and Two Crows Tacos will be present for food purchase throughout the entire event. KIDS EAT FREE at the MFB&CC mobile meal bus. The event site is accessible for all abilities, though some unstable ground may be present. Restrooms and free drinking water will be onsite. Bring your reusable water bottle to help us reduce waste at the event!
Directions & Parking: Missoula Under Construction will take place near Fort Missoula Regional Park (3401-3499 South Ave W). From Reserve Street, go west on South Ave. W. Take the third exit at the round-a-bout into Fort Missoula Regional Park’s parking areas. Look for the HUGE tent, giant construction trucks and signs for Missoula Under Construction. Overflow parking present in any lots along South Ave.
Missoula in August can be hot and this is a fun & dirty event! Prepare to get your clothes dirty while driving the big rigs and interacting with the trades activities! Sunscreen recommended.
