Adventure Guide: Fun ways to spend your weekend in the Treasure Valley
There's a lot going on in the Treasure Valley this weekend, starting right here in Boise. The 26th Annual Zamzows Frisbee Fest takes place Saturday at Ann Morrison Park. For $15 your dog can enter the frisbee catching contest to compete for prizes in distance and style. For dog owners and dog lovers alike, the event includes a beer garden to enjoy while you watch canine athletes compete for the title of 'top dog.'
Dogs aren't the only ones that can compete Saturday. The 34th Annual Harvest Classic Fun Run features an 8k run or wheelchair race, a two mile run or walk, and a one mile non-competitive race as well. Attendees can enjoy food, prizes, entertainment and vendor booths. Proceeds will provide money for local schools to buy P.E. equipment, as well as for a Nampa Parks and Recreation Department scholarship fund.
Another event this weekend is also raising money for a good cause. The Hyde Park Street Fair is an annual fundraiser in Camel's Back Park featuring vendor booths, activities for children, live music, food, beer, community entertainers, and a wine garden. All proceeds go back into grants and programs for the North End community.
Another family-friendly event this weekend is the Meridian Community Block Party. It is designed to unite businesses and organizations whose programs promote healthy lifestyles, develop creativity and inspire the concept of play. Saturday's full-day event features inflatables, a climbing wall, a mascot dance-off, food trucks, performances by local bands, theater groups, and a variety of vendors.
Another community gathering Saturday, but this one is in Caldwell. The Indian Creek Festival is an all-day event that includes a car show, cardboard kayak races, a chalk art contest, and square dancing.
