JUMP Boise's throwing an event that will tickle the imaginations of the whole family... Their first ever Flywheel festival!

August 7th, on the JUMP Boise campus, it's their first ever Flywheel festival and it's something to get excited about! You'll get to check out the over 50 tractors they have on site at JUMP Boise! According to Jump's website, "the folks from Idaho Wool Growers Association and The Twisted Ewe will bring educational booths, wool product vendors, the cutest sheep ever and a community art installation to JUMP for a Fiber Frolic!" In addition to all that, there will be "A pie-eating contests, a pie walk, and more are among the activities we have planned. And don’t miss the wool crafting opportunities including felt crafting, crochet, knitting and weaving.

There will of course be food trucks to cure your hunger pangs, cider flights and a tap takeover in the beer garden. And, have any music in your blood? "Music from the Idaho Bluegrass Association will be playing music from 11:00AM – 2:45PM in our Amphitheater. They will also have a jam session for you to bring your instrument and join in." This is going to be an event that caters to all of your senses; sight, sound, touch, smell and of course taste! It's summertime in the Treasure Valley and JUMP Boise knows how to throw a party and invite everyone out (kids, too!) to have a great time and unwind on a hot day.
