Veteran’s Park Neighborhood Association, Boise Public Schools Education Foundation, and Boise Parks & Rec present Annie (2014) at Veterans Park. This fun-filled family “Movie Under the Stars” evening begins at 7:00 pm, with free fun and games for kids provided by the Boise Parks & Rec Mobile Recreation Van and food vendors!
Capture the flag and dodgeball are favorite activities for kids of all ages! At dusk, Annie (2014) will be shown on a huge 30′ inflatable movie screen.
Your VPNA board will be on hand to chit chat and discuss neighborhood happenings. We will also be hosting a raffle (see images) before the movie starts! Raffle tickets are $1 each. Thanks to Betsie Richardson Studio, Frazier Images, Stewart’s Gem Shop, Matt, and Tyler for their donations.
The Boise Farmers Market is coming to Veterans Park this summer! This is a great opportunity to get local produce and meet farmers in our neighborhood. And the Mobile Market accepts SNAP benefits. Here are the deets:
Location: Veterans Memorial Park
Dates: Wednesdays June 10 – August 19
Time: 11am – 1:30pm
Warm weather means event season is really heating up. I’ve added a bunch of events to the VPNA calendar. In our hood there are bike rides, food festivals, roadway open houses, mobile recreation times, VPNA board meetings, and the VPNA movie night! What did I miss? Please email us at let us know of other events in and around the VPNA and I will add them to the calendar.
From the West End Food Park: The bike lanes in the West End are primed and ready for some major bike traffic—lets make it happen with an event this Thursday, July 3 at 6pm at 2419 W. Fairview Ave. Hoping to take over the West End of Boise this week with bikes, beer, music, and amazing food—it’s a grassroots idea and we are working to make it reality. Come hungry.
Meet at 10am on Saturday, June 28 at the north side of Fairview park (on W Bannock St near 23rd St). Ride with others in the neighborhood to the downtown farmer’s market. The bike ride is guided with a lead and a tail and we will go over some safety tips before leaving. This is a great opportunity to try cycling downtown for your first or hundredth time. Please bring your helmets. Everyone in the family is welcome. Ride On!
