July 7 is the big day of Boise’s sesquicentennial celebration, the official Boise birthday. The first plat was filed July 7, 1863 and Boise became a city. The big finale is the BOISE 150 Sesqui-Party on Sunday, July 7, our 150th birthday party. It starts at 11:30 a.m., when Mayor Bieter joins the Boise Bicycle Project in leading a bike parade from City Hall to Julia Davis Park.
The main party starts at noon and runs through 5 p.m. There will be music and entertainment at the Gene Harris Bandshell and at four other locations throughout the park, including a vintage fashion and car show, Civil War re-enactments, community booths, BOISE 150 merchandise, more than 20 food trucks and two beer gardens. (Visit BOISE150.org for a complete listing and other details.)
See you at the party.
