A big thing to do here in the summertime, is to float the Boise river, they start at Barber park, and float on rafts to Ann Morrison park.
It reminds me of the movie"deliverence" with the inbred kid and the banjo.
Some of the people that float the river would scare that kid away, and if he was there playing his little banjo, he would probably get beer bottles thrown at him, poor little inbred kid...
Boise has now decided to outlaw beer while floating the river, since we have an abundance of drunks in this city, it has not gone too well. If you get caught drinking an alcoholic beverage on the river, a prompt death sentence will occur, or a $300.00 fine.
Next on the city's agenda: No drinking in bars!
All winter long there are more cultural activities than 10 people could attend: Opera, Master Chorale, Philharmonic, Idaho Ballet, Idaho Dance Theatre, four or five theatre companies, Shakespeare (summer), regular rock concerts, stage productions by touring companies, Boise State has regular recitals, concerts, chamber music, and plays. The museum, art museum sponsor live entertainment, as do the bars. Some of it's really lively!
