Who’s ready for the fair?

The Western Montana Fair returns to Missoula next week, and at 9 and 11 years old, my kids have high hopes that this year they will be big enough to ride all the rides. They’re already plotting a plan to spend an entire day at the fair riding all the rides, seeing all the exhibits and of course, eating all the food.

This morning I got an email concerning one food vendor in particular. I’m copying it below in its entirety so you too can include it in your fair planning:

BASKIN-ROBBINS AND A CAROUSEL FOR MISSOULA TEAM UP AT THE FAIR!

Continuing a tradition started in 2012, A Carousel for Missoula will be a food vendor at the Western Montana Fair.  From August 9-14, volunteers from the Carousel will join with staff from Baskin-Robbins Ice Cream to sell Baskin-Robbins ice cream scoops, milkshakes, Cappuccino Blasts, Root Beer Floats, Iced Lattes, Homemade Waffle Cones, Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches, and more.  The location of the new Baskin-Robbins trailer will be on the East end of the food concession midway.

A Carousel for Missoula and Missoula’s locally-owned Baskin-Robbins have been partners since before the Carousel’s inception in 1995, through birthday parties, donations, and sponsorships.  As always, Baskin-Robbins will donate a percentage of their sales at the Western Montana Fair to A Carousel for Missoula, in addition to their 17% contribution to the Western Montana Fair.

A Carousel for Missoula invites all carousel supporters and ice cream lovers to stop by the Carousel’s ice cream trailer at this year’s fair; Support a Carousel for Missoula by buying some of the world’s greatest ice cream!

ABOUT A CAROUSEL FOR MISSOULA

Built to provide the community of Missoula a new option for good, old-fashioned fun, the Carousel continues to entertain children (and adults) in Missoula with rides on the beautifully-crafted horses, as well as with family-friendly events.  Whether helping children celebrate their special day or seeing families come together for a little playtime, A Carousel for Missoula is happy to be a strong part of Missoula’s rich history.

ABOUT BASKIN-ROBBINS

Baskin-Robbins was founded in 1945 by two ice cream enthusiasts (and brothers-in-law) whose passion led to the creation of more than 1,200 ice cream flavors and a wide variety of delicious treats.  In Missoula, Baskin-Robbins has been owned by Big Sky High School and University of Montana graduate Matt Loomis, along with David and Beverly Loomis, since 2001.  Each year, thousands of dollars and hundreds of volunteer hours are given back to Missoula nonprofits.

Thankful for free rides on the carousel

Earlier this week Theresa Cox, executive director of A Carousel for Missoula, sent out this short, sweet note:
Thanks for helping us let others know they can ride the Carousel for free on Thanksgiving. (Cooks will be especially grateful if we get all their guests out of the house while they work!)

A Carousel for Missoula is again offering FREE RIDES for all on Thanksgiving, from 11am to 3pm, thanks to our volunteer operators. What a great way to celebrate the day while dinner is cooking!
