Indigenous Celebration Night at Ogren Park in August
You've gotta give it up for the folks over at Ogren Park - when it became clear that they weren't going to be able to have a baseball season this year, they were ready to go with plans for what to do with the stadium for the summer. Between Centerfield Cinema, Trivia Tuesdays, and Friday Happy Hours, it's been one of the most active spots for Missoula to get out of the house while still maintaining social distancing.
And, on August 1st, All Nations Health Center is teaming up with the Paddleheads for Indigenous Celebration Night at the park. They held this event last year too, so it'll include a 5K Fun Run & Walk, but they're adding something new to it this year - the celebration will also feature the 1st ever Missoula N8VZ Got Talent, celebrating the best of Missoula's heritage and culture.
The 5K will be in the morning - at 9 AM - while N8VZ Got Talent will take place that evening, starting at 7:30 PM.
I've been out to Ogren Park a lot this summer - I've gone to every Centerfield Cinema, made my out to a couple of Trivia Tuesdays, and even made it to Happy Hour last week, and I've been really impressed by how seriously they're taking their COVID precautions. Everything's been super clean and socially-distanced, even the lines to get food and drinks. Ogren Park also just implemented a mandatory mask rule for when you're walking around the concourse.
