The 2nd annual Meridian Youth Farmers Market season opened on June 24 and runs every Saturday until September 2. It’s a great way to shop local and support area youth, who man the 20 to 30 booths each week during the event.

The City of Moscow and the Moscow Arts Commission hosted Moscow Artwalk 2017 on June 16. The event featured 66 host locations and more than 125 artists from the beautiful Moscow community.


“Cool Rain,” presented by the Pocatello Fire Department began on June 22. This event takes place during the summer and rotates among the city’s parks. During the event, firefighters station an engine in the park and turn the hoses on, giving park-goers a chance to cool off in the simulated rain. Firefighters and officers are also available to talk to children and adults about bullying, smoke alarms, and home escape planning.


Pocatello Police Officers are looking to catch local children red-handed doing good things for the community. As part of the department’s participation in the “Play Unplugged” program, officers will be handing out “Caught Ya” badges to kids doing positive, safe, or helpful things in the city.
