BOISE, Idaho — The last couple First Thursday's have looked quite a bit different than year's past given the COVID-19 outbreak. Many businesses in downtown Boise scaled back operations, but now, some are starting to open back up.

As a result, the First Thursday on June 4 will be a hybrid event. The stores that are staying closed will be offering items online or at curbside pick-ups. Stores that have reopened will allow you to sho pinside, as long as you follow social distancing guidelines.

First Thursday runs from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Boise is still currently in stage three of Governor Little's economic rebound plan. The governor is holding a press conference on June 5 at 11 a.m. relating to unemployment and Idaho's economy.
