A flight from Boise to Dakar, Senegal would take more than 16 hours—and that's about the quickest way anyone from Idaho is getting to Africa. That is, unless you make plans to attend the African Summer Night Ball. With food from more than eight African countries, an African fashion show, dancing, and music by Zimbabwean artist Loveness Wesa and The Bantus, the ball gives a "night in Africa while only being a few miles from home." The fourth annual event also features Third Judicial District Magistrate Dayo Onanubosi as emcee and special guest Miss Africa Idaho Davina Hull.
Dinner will be served 7:30-10 p.m. Dress is semi formal to formal (no sneakers or T-shirts), and admission is for 18 years or older.
Price: $15 adv., $20 door
