Kuna Days 2021 kicks off Friday starting at 4 p.m. at Bernie Fisher Park in downtown Kuna. The event will carry over and through Saturday evening.
Throughout the weekend there will be different local food vendors, events and games for people to take part in.
“This event has actually been going on for around 55 years,” Executive Director Karri Keller said.
“It used to be about the community coming together and having a big BBQ where everybody would bring their own food. All of the farmers would get together and basically its when they would exchange services and checks," Keller said.
About 7 years ago, the Kuna Chamber of Commerce took over the Kuna Days festivities and made it more of a community-wide celebration.

This year’s theme is “America the Beautiful.”
“We are really wanting to just pay homage to all of the men and women that have sacrificed in the military and our emergency services after a year of craziness and everything we thought what a perfect year it would be to say thank you for all of their hard work,” Keller said.
There will be live entertainment Friday evening and Saturday morning kicks off with a pancake breakfast and Fun Run. Other activities people can enjoy at Kuna Days include a lawnmower race, cornhole tournament and mullet catwalk.
“We’ve added some fun different options just to kind of bring it back to its roots and what Kuna is about,” Keller said.
