Plenty of choices to fill the day:

The 13th annual Hempfest takes to Caras Park, beginning at noon. There are at least a half-dozen bands, featured speakers, including Montana’s Speaker of the House Bob Bergren, a fashion show and tons of great vendors of all sorts of stuff.

Give Army Reservist First Lieutenant Kevin Furey a big Missoula welcome back from his second tour of Iraq. Kevin is a civil affairs officer…and he also served in our Montana House of Representatives for House District 91 until he was called to his second tour in 2007. The picnic party begins at 4 p.m., and is being hosted by Dayna Swanson at 5920 April Lane. If you have the chance, RSVP to the event. A donation of $20 is suggested.

Later, DO NOT MISS The 4th Annual Double Haul Fly Fishing Competition and Fundraiser which benefits the Poverello Center. By day you can participate in a catch-and-release fly fishing competition on the Clark Fork, the Bitterroot and the Blackfoot…and by night head to the banquet, open bar there too, which begins with a silent auction and open bar at 5 p.m., and then the banquet and awards dinner at 7 p.m. Awards will be given for biggest fish, smallest fish, heaviest net, junior angler and best guide. Best $35 tax-deductible donation you’ll ever make, and you can buy ’em at the door. Banquet is at the Governor’s Ballroom in the Florence Building, and dress is Missoula Saturday casual. Open bar is sponsored by Kettlehouse Brewing and PBR. God bless ’em. If you have questions or want reservations, contact Ellie Hill at 406-218-9608.

Did I mention Bob Wire? And special guest?

Bob Wire. Special Guest. Bob Wire. Special Guest Ooooooooh, don’t ya love secrets???

If you still have energy left after that, on Sunday, make sure to hit the Zootown Arts Community Center 1st-year birthday bash at 235 North 1st Street West. That event begins at 2 p.m. (finishing at 6 p.m.) and costs $5 if you get your ticket at Rockin’ Rudy’s beforehand, or $7 at the door. Either way, that’s a steal. Four bands (Mudslide Charlie’s, Baba Ganoush, Ross Voorhees, and A Memory of Elephants) and Big Sky Brewing. Yum. The event benefits the fabulous do-it-yourself community arts center on the Northside.

And yep – lots of art too.

Hazardous Waste Days

It’s time to unload some of the stuff you didn’t know what to do with.
Hazardous Waste Days

The event starts on Friday the 11th, 8:30am-6:00pm.
On Saturday the 12th, 8:30am-4:00pm.

I’m heading out there now.

Remember, the Scott Street Bridge is closed.
