MERIDIAN, Idaho — A Treasure Valley tradition, 90 years in the making, went on strong this weekend in Meridian.

Meridian Dairy Days dates back to 1929, and celebrates the dairy industry in Idaho. This week, dairy princess pageants, a fun run, a cow-lovers carnival, and vendors took over Storey Park to educate the community about the importance of dairy farms in the Treasure Valley.

Idaho based yogurt company, Chobani, served up snacks for the crowd Saturday, and Darigold gave out free milk samples.

You could feel the excitement in the air as a parade went down Meridian road.

If you missed the parade, no worries!

If you've ever dreamed of riding a monster truck, this is your chance. Drivers are offering rides from 8:00 to dusk Saturday night.

A fireworks show starting at 10:00 p.m. will wrap Dairy Days up with a bang. The event is officially over at 11:00 p.m. when the cows really do come home.
