Boise Navy Week


If the only thing you think of when hearing the term "navy" is sailor suits and the Village People classic "In the Navy," take it as a surefire sign to take part in one of the countless activities of Boise Navy Week. The program's purpose is to give people a first-hand look at what naval life is like for the thousands of men and women serving throughout the world. And although the Pacific Ocean lies more than eight hours to the west, Boise was one of 19 cities selected to host a navy week. Other land-locked host cities include St. Louis, Kansas City, Mo., Salt Lake City and Des Moines, Iowa.

Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter will present a Navy Week Proclamation at the State Capitol on Friday, Aug. 20, opening up Boise Navy Week 2010. Many of the week's events will be held in conjunction with the Western Idaho Fair where they will host displays and performances by the Navy Band, which will also perform at Boise City Hall and Bronco Stadium. Fulfill your childhood dreams of flying a fighter jet by boarding one of the flight simulators at the Western Idaho Fair. On Saturday, Aug. 28, the Navy's "Leap Frogs" Parachute Team will perform at the Warhawk Air Museum in Nampa. The team, composed of 15 Navy SEAL and SWCC commandos, jumps out of aircraft to create complex parachute formations, proving once again how fearless Navy men and women are.
