7 Events Happening this August Weekend in the Magic Valley
School started for many this week, marking the end of summer break, but one of the good news about the first week of school is that it is often a shorter week than most. Despite having to go back to school, the weekend is fast approaching and there is plenty to be excited about and to do this weekend around the Magic Valley. The weather is still good enough to get outside and is one of many reasons you should check out one or multiple of the events this weekend.
Thursday, August 16 Through Saturday, August 19 - Cassia County Carnival
The Cassia County Fair has been taking place this week, and Wednesday night began the Cassia County Carnival.

Sunday, August 20 - Sunday Make Break
With the hot weather this past week, you might have been keeping your little ones inside so they don't melt, and after a few days in, they might be driving you nuts. Use the weekend to get them out of the house by using their creative mind and creating some crafts. Sunday Make Break takes place this Sunday from 2 PM to 4 PM at Michael's in Twin Falls, and this week they will be making a 'Kindness is Cool' poster. The best part about this event, it is free.

Don't let a long week keep you inside, get out and enjoy some of the amazing events this weekend. Go see a play, enjoy some carnival rides, taken in the rodeo, enjoy a scavenger hunt and spaghetti dinner, make some crafts, enjoy a glass of wine and some incredible music via the piano, shop at the farmers market, or enjoy a car show. Whatever you decide to do, be safe, have fun, and enjoy your weekend.
