Five Things You Should Do This Weekend in Boise

Since you aren’t going to that canceled Los Lonely Boys concert.

1. TAKE AN ARTSY STROLL
Cliche or not, there truly IS “something for everyone” at Boise’s annual Art in the Park. It happens today through Sunday at Julia Davis Park. Get more details in this preview.

2. GET PSYCHEDELIC
If “Pretty in Pink” is one of your sentimental favorites, go see the Psychedelic Furs tonight at the Knitting Factory. If psychedelic indie-rock is more your speed, trip out to Animal Collective on Saturday. [Tickets]

3. TREAT THE KIDS
Translation: Get them out of the house. There’s on-stage action Sunday with “Disney Junior Live On Tour! Pirate and Princess Adventure” at Taco Bell Arena. [Tickets]

4. SEE SHAKESPEARE … BEFORE IT ENDS
Summer is close to gonzo. Idaho Shakespeare Festival opens its final play, “The Foreigner,” this weekend. The clock is ticking. Time to get serious if you haven’t been out there yet …

5. RIDE KNOBBY TIRES
With temperatures cooling a smidge, it’s perfect mountain-biking weather. Demo some wicked rides, inhale BBQ and drink a brew Saturday at Avimor in the Boise Foothills.
