Unless you're turning 103 this year, the Snake River Stampede has been going strong since before you were born. The popular event, which began in 1915 as a tiny local rodeo with horses herded to Nampa from Horseshoe Bend, is celebrating its 102nd birthday this year, proving itself once again the "wildest, fastest show on Earth." Whether you're a serious horse enthusiast or just looking to watch cowboys go flying, the Ford Idaho Center in Nampa is the place to be. Featuring everything from saddle bronc riding, steer wrestling and roping to concerts and much, much more, this is a show that no true Idahoan can miss. (The over $400,000 shelled out each year in prize money doesn't hurt either.)
