Let's just keep adding the events to a long list of special experiences making their return in 2021. This weekend addition takes place at Esther Simplot Park with live local musicians, food, and a ton of celebrations on the water.

Music on the Water is back on Saturday and Sunday for the 4th annual celebration. The pandemic can't hold this free family event down this year.

When do I stop beginning articles with "we're back" and "back after a year off" type of post-pandemic introductions? I know the virus has so much we don't exactly know about and how long do these vaccines last? I don't think we have any of those answers but most are double vaccine safe and that's enough to open the doors. Esther Simplot Park is the perfect place to kick-off a Summer on paddles, tubes, and just lounging out on the sand.

There is a beer garden will your favorite craft beers available. You can also upgrade your friends to a special VIP tent to relax as temperatures hover 90 degrees. More details below.
