Mardi Gras (or Fat Tuesday) is next week and East Idaho doesn’t plan to miss out on the action! Catch local businesses this weekend that are preparing to feast! There are also plenty of music events going on from Rock + Roll, to Open Mic, to Orchestra. There is a Superheroes + Villians event for the littles at Austin Kade academy and there is still time to catch the production of “9 to 5” and the Palace Playhouse in Chubbuck!

CURIOUS WHY WE DO THIS?
I started organizing local events for a few reasons. Mainly, I hear so many people say that there’s nothing to do in southeast Idaho. As you can see, that is simply not the case, but tracking down all of the fun can be labor intensive. I do all the digging, so all you have to do is show up! Secondly, as a Realtor I help many families new to the area get acquainted with our wonderful hometown, and this local event guide was my gift to them!
If you’re just a regular local like me, drop a hello in the comments, or if perhaps you’ve been wanting to know if the grass might be greener somewhere else, click here for a fast (free) home valuation to see what your home might sell for! I’d love to help you “make it home”!
