With Thanksgiving and Christmas coming up, it means a lot of people will likely be spending a lot of time with the family - and that means you're going to need something to bring the kids to, right? Well, that's exactly what A Carousel For Missoula is all about - it's one of Missoula's most popular spots, and was recently named one of the best places in town to take visitors from out of state.

And this year, A Carousel for Missoula is giving families a few options to get free rides over the holiday season. Here's how it's going to work...

But that's not the only way kids can ride free this season...

Kids Receiving Their COVID Vaccinations Can Also Get a Free Ride on the Carousel

The COVID vaccine has recently been approved for kids aged 5 and older, so A Carousel for Missoula is working with the City-County Health Department, Community Medical Center, and Missoula County Public Schools to offer free rides to any kid who receives their vaccine.

Masks are still required for anyone over the age of 5 within the carousel building.

Will you be taking your kids - or the whole family - for a free ride on the carousel over the next few weeks?
