6 Events to Enjoy this Weekend in the Magic Valley
This week has been crazy compared to most. There was the Southern Idaho Home and Garden Show last weekend that many residents of the Magic Valley attended, followed by the Super Bowl Sunday night, and then Valentine's Day on Tuesday. This week has been different than most, but it is beginning to wind down, and another weekend is almost here. While there might not be a big game to watch or a holiday to prepare for or celebrate, there is still a ton to do this weekend. Here are some of the events taking place this weekend around the Magic Valley.

The CSI men's and women's basketball teams are back home this weekends, as both teams look to continue their magical season.

Both teams will be in action at home this Saturday against the College of Southern Nevada. The women will tip off at 1 PM and the men will tip off soon after that game at 3 PM. The season is winding down, so there are only a couple of chances left to see these two amazing teams.
Saturday, February 18 - Cheese Tasting
For those looking to get outside this weekend, as the weather should warm up a little bit, and enjoy some time getting to meet new people, eating some local food, and sipping on some local cider, then head on out to Cedar Draw Cider in Buhl this weekend. On Saturday, from 5 PM until 7 PM they will be holding an event for cheese tasting, with the cheese being supplied by Evans Farmstead Cheeses, also made in Buhl. Enjoy locally-made cheese, sip on locally-made cider, and have a good time this Saturday.
Saturday, February 18 - Camp Rainbow Share Your Heart Ball
Camp Rainbow Gold is hosting its annual Share Your Heart Ball for the first time in three years. Camp Rainbow is an Idaho nonprofit organization that puts on events for children that are battling cancer. They seek to help families with children fighting the nasty disease and the Share Your Heart Ball is one of their biggest events. These events are how they raise funds to help these families and children. The event is this Saturday, and you can purchase tickets by clicking on the link above, and if you are unable to attend, you can still donate and help out by following the link. There will be live auctions, dinner, and dancing, so put on your fancy clothes, head to the ball and help children and families dealing with cancer.
While there may not be as much as last weekend, there is still a lot of fun to be had. Go to a musical, or a play, listen to jazz music, support the local basketball teams, sip on cider and enjoy some local fresh cheese, or support a good cause while enjoying a dance. There are many options this weekend and the weather should be pleasant, for now. Whatever you decide to do, have fun, be safe, and enjoy your weekend.
