Thousands of people will flood downtown Missoula this weekend for the 9th annual River City Roots Festival. 

It's this Saturday and Sunday (23rd & 24th) and free admission for all ages.The main stage will be on West Main street which will include an art show, the children's fun fest will be in Caras Park, you can find the food court on Ryman and the 4 mile run will go through Greenough Park and downtown.

The music is mostly bluegrass but there are a few gems in there, like Shakewell and Reverend Slanky. There will also be river fun and plenty of local brews.
