Holiday Events to Enjoy
The holiday events calendar in Missoula is jam-packed, and full of festive merriment throughout this joyous holiday season. Of these great holiday events, the Parade of Lights through Missoula is one of the most popular. The entire day is filled with free family activities, including photos with Santa and horse-drawn carriage rides, and ends with the parade and tree lighting in downtown Missoula. Missoula’s Festival of Trees is also a wonderful event that will get everyone into the holiday spirit. The events, which include the Tour of Trees, Jingle Bell Jam, Gala Dinner & Auction, and The Teddy Bear Tea Party all take place at the historic Florence Hotel in Downtown Missoula. Afterwards, enjoy browsing the entries from this years’ Gingerbread contest, before heading out for an evening of old-fashioned ice skating among the snow banks, trees and lights at Missoula’s Winter Wonderland holiday skating rink.
