Adventure Guide: Fun ways to spend your weekend in the Treasure Valley

You can start part-two of your Fourth of July weekend eating some fresh food, enjoying some art and shopping local vendors at Capital City Public Market.

They call themselves Boise's original farmers market and are open every Saturday all the way through December from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. The market is located in the heart of downtown on the corner of 8th and Idaho. If that’s too far for you, there are also farmers markets in Kuna, Nampa, Caldwell and Emmett to name a few.

If you're looking for a more specific type of shopping, the Lavender Festival in Kuna has lavender products galore.

You can pick a bouquet of lavender from the field, enjoy lavender foods and desserts, and buy lavender gifts such as handmade soaps and sprays.

There's another annual event kicking off on Saturday. Eagle Fun Days includes a 5k and 10k run, vendors, games, live music, a custom car show, a wet n'wild parade and more.

If you're not able to make it Saturday, a second day of events begins on Sunday.

Also happening Sunday, a unique yoga class for you, maybe a friend and some farm animals.

Goat yoga starts at 8 a.m. right here in Boise on Meadow Lark Drive. All experience levels are welcome. You can snap some cute photos with the animals after the class and they'll even let you grab some farm fresh eggs for the road.

You can put the cherry on top of a great weekend by watching the feel-good musical Mama-Mia. Just head to the Idaho Shakespeare Festival Amphitheater and Habitat Reserve. Guests are encouraged to bring their own chairs to watch the outdoor event Sunday evening at 7 p.m.
