BOISE, Idaho — Happening this weekend, the 40th annual Hyde Park Street Fair kicks off in Boise. The annual party at Camel's Back Park is free and family-friendly.
There's plenty of music, food and drinks, crafts and live entertainment. More than 120 vendors will be set up at this year's event, along with 13 more in the food court area. Beer and wine will be available for purchase. Nearly 50 local bands are hitting two different stages to keep the crowd entertained over the weekend.
The North End Neighborhood Association is asking attendees to seek out alternate transportation as street parking in the Hyde Park area is extremely limited. There is a free bike corral located near the tennis courts at Camel's Back and anyone using it can snag a raffle ticket to win a cruiser bike from Idaho Mountain Touring.
A free shuttle will be available for use at First Baptist Church, a mile south of Camel's Back on 607 N 13th Street. Shuttles will run in a continuous loop Friday and Saturday but will not be available on Sunday. Handicap parking is designated along Heron Street adjacent to the park.
The fair opens up at 4 p.m. Friday afternoon and runs from 10 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday. For more information, click here.
