This weekend is a great time to celebrate the ending of the school year and our freedoms as Americans! We also have Memorial Day to remember the fallen in service of our country. There are usually block parties, cookouts, outdoor events, and more that bring folks together to celebrate. Many families create memories out on a boat, running a 5k, or just grilling some of their favorite foods. 


If trying something new and exciting is on your agenda for this Memorial Day, check out one of this year's Memorial Day events in Boise. 


A Midsummer Night's Dream at Boise Little Theater

Starting May 28th, take the whole family for this take on Shakespeare's classic tale. Seating is arranged in pods based on group size, so make an evening of it during the long weekend!


Remember the Fallen Virtual 21K Run Walk

Do this virtual run/walk anywhere you like! Race packets begin shipping on 5/25, and then you can participate in whatever way is best for you. Submit your results and receive your medal!


Grand Opening of Green Acres Food Truck Park

Take the whole family to Midtown Boise's food truck park! This Memorial Day weekend is your first chance to enjoy live music, giveaways, food trucks, and more! A great place to stop along the Greenbelt while biking or walking. 


Dennis the Cat Day at the Old Idaho Penitentiary

Learn about the history of Prison Pets, participate in the scavenger hunt, and help the animals of the Idaho Humane Society. In the 60s, Dennis was a cat that lived at the Idaho State Penitentiary and became one of the most well-known figures at the prison. 


Visit the Warhawk Air Museum 

For $5 admission (kids under 6 are free), visit their entire collection of aircraft! And, on Memorial Day, you've got the chance to see the Memorial Day Flyover from 11 am - approximately 11:20 am!

How are you celebrating the long weekend? Wear your sunscreen, stay hydrated, and get outside for the extra day off!
