10 Events to Enjoy in the Magic Valley this Warm July Weekend
Another week is coming to an end, and the temperatures are quickly on the rise. Somehow, most of the Magic Valley has avoided seeing triple digits this summer, but that streak is likely to end this weekend, making getting outside a little tough for some. Despite the heat being projected this weekend, the summer in Idaho is too short to stay inside on the couch. That is for the long winter. Get up off your booty, get out, and enjoy one of the many events taking place this weekend in the Magic Valley.
