1. SPEND TIME WITH YOUR KIDS
Cultural diversity is the theme of the Eagle Island Experience Festival on Saturday and Sunday. In its 12th year, the event will offer two days of music, arts and fun for all ages. Entertainment schedules are here. Want to stay closer to Downtown? Head over to Zoo Boise on Sunday and brave the crowds at Zoo Daze, which will include a much-anticipated (in the Deeds household) visit from Diego.
2. PIG OUT ON A PIROSHKI
Expand your culinary horizons at the Russian Food Festival today and Saturday at Saint Seraphim Russian Orthodox Church. (Piroshki? Not quite as tasty as a runza — but that's the German in me talking.)
3. TREAT YOUR EARS
This sounds like fun. Garden City recording studio Audio Lab is having a concert/open house/grand opening/20th anniversary celebration today and Saturday. Bands rock tonight at Visual Arts Collective. You can tour Audio Lab (and win concert tickets there) Saturday. All the details are here.
4. GET LOUD(ON)
You have until 5 p.m. today to win tickets to the Loudon Wainwright III concert Saturday at Boise Contemporary Theater. After that, tickets are $50 — and worth every penny, fans will say.
5. JOIN THE BIKE PARADE
Missing out on Boise Bike Week? Have no fear, there’s still fun to be had this weekend — including the big highlight: Saturday's Pedal Power Parade.Don't forget to decorate your bike! (Or use the photo below from a Tour de Fat bike parade to inspire your creativity.)
