The 2016 Western Montana Fair officially opens today at 5 p.m. with the carnival and vendors open, weather permitting. There is currently a 60% chance of rain in Missoula starting at 6 p.m., dropping to 35% chance around 9 p.m. tonight.

If you are planning to hit the fair tonight, you can get in for free if you donate canned food. So if you're bringing the family, make sure you bring enough donations to cover everybody.

Don't miss the Demo Derby this Sunday, KC and I will be your MCs. And new to the fair this year is a Brewfest.
