Get ready, Idaho. It’s going to be a memorable summer.
The Downton Boise Foundation just announced that the First Thursday and Alive After 5 are back. The summer events are a great way for residents to congregate and experience the exhilaration of music, art, culture and entertainment in the vibrant downtown area.
All the fun gets started in May. The First Thursday will look a little different from past years. Organizers plan a super-sized event with roving music performances and other activities everyone in the family can enjoy. Idahoans will be treated to the sights of artwork and will be presented with an array of entertainment and shopping options and plenty of places to dine.
The ongoing event is sponsored by Columbia First Bank and runs through the month of October on the first Thursday of each month from 5 p.m. and 9 p.m.
Event organizers hail First Thursday as a huge success and community asset. People who attend always have a reason for celebration. Along with all the festivities, the community can also feel a sense of pride in everything downtown has to offer. Local businesses are also overjoyed to see so much support.
Residents are also gearing up for this summer’s free concert series known as Alive After Five. It returns to Boise beginning June 15, which is the 35th anniversary. Thanks to a local partnership with a music booking agency, concert goers will enjoy a mixture of bands and music this summer.
The Alive After Five concert series is planned for June 15, June 22, July 6, July 20, July 27, August 3 and August 10. All concerts are held on Wednesdays.
If you recently paid a visit to downtown, you know how palpable the energy is. The vibrancy of the downtown core is only getting stronger and will be in full force this summer with an exciting lineup of concerts and events.
