Head over to the Sun Valley Brewery for the weekend's kickoff party, with the High Street Band rocking the house. Buy your tickets ($15 adv.) at the Bellevue or Hailey fire departments, Wood River Fire and Rescue and the brewery, or at the door ($20). Then taste your way through the chili contest on Sunday from noon-2 p.m. on Carbonate Street, between Main Street and 1st Avenue in Hailey. Only $10 to sample and vote for your favorite chili. Plus there'll be a dunk tank, live music, and bounce house for the kids.
