Boise and Its People: Sharing Stories of Place

Thursday, Dec. 5

by

Aging is tough. Things start to ache and sag; sunny dispositions become cloudy perspectives. But each birthday brings an excuse to celebrate, and there has been no better example of how to stretch out a party than Boise's 150th birthday. The Boise 150 Sesqui-Shop unveils Boise and Its People: Sharing Stories of Place, an exhibit that "celebrates and explores personal stories of living, working and playing in Boise." Boise and Its People is part of the sesquicentennial swan song in the waning days before our fair city turns 151, which includes a performance by local author/playwright/poet Heidi Kraay. Share your own stories of life in the City of Trees or step into the Inst-O-Matic photo booth to create some memories--after all, our state motto is esto perpetua or "let it be perpetual." Eat, drink and be merry. You only turn 150 once.
