TWIN FALLS, Idaho — The vendors at the 38th annual Twin Falls Western Days are currently preparing for a busy weekend. For many of them, it’s their first event of the year.
Antico Pizzeria owners Doug and Charmaine Gaskill said they were expecting to have their busiest year yet in 2020, but after many cancellations, they only ended up participating in two events.
The outlook for this year is much more optimistic. They said they are expecting a much higher turnout at events as more people are getting back out into their communities.
“We are looking forward to seeing what it does for us,” said Doug.
“Thank you to all the sponsors for this. We are looking forward to it. It is going to be hot and it is going to be busy, and that’s what we want,” Charmaine added.
The Western Days celebrations begin Friday night, and all of the commercial vendors and carnival rides will be at the Twin Falls City Park throughout the weekend.
The Western Days parade will begin at 9 a.m. Saturday and end at noon. Several cross-streets on Blue Lakes Boulevard and Shoshone Street will be closed. The city wants to remind everyone to please give themselves extra time when traveling and to watch for pedestrians in downtown Twin Falls.
