One thing about the summer is that the days seem to fly by fast, which means weeks go quickly and we are already halfway through July. The time of summer is ticking away quicker than most of us would like and it is why getting out and enjoying every weekend is so important before they are gone and the weather drops again. While it is hotter than many of us would like, it doesn't mean you should stay inside from the heat. Another weekend is about to begin and there are plenty of fun events taking place to enjoy.

The weather is hot and so are the events in the Magic Valley this weekend. Get out and enjoy all that the area has to offer. Learn about safety, spend time with your daughter, spend an afternoon in a mountain town, be a superhero, do some Christmas shopping or enjoy some country music. There is much to do, and if none of these are what you are looking for, you can spend the weekend resting or perhaps fishing, kayaking, or potentially taking a fun weekend trip. Have a safe and fun weekend and enjoy the summer ones while they last.

Since marijuana is still illegal in Idaho, you can’t legally walk down the street and get high, but there's another way to get high around Twin Falls that is much more socially acceptable.
