The 2010 float season begins Thursday, July 1. Epley's Boise River Rentals will open for business at noon, the same day as last year. Temperatures are expected to hit the 80s on Thursday, but Ada County officials warn floaters that the river is cold and can still be very dangerous at any given time. Last year, more than 100,000 people floated the Boise River.
If you're looking for a bargain this summer, Epley's is offering 20 percent off of raft and tube rentals on Tuesdays. Information on park hours, rental equipment, and parking is available at www.epleys.com. Click the link to "Boise Location" at the bottom of the page.
