Don’t Miss These 10 Events in the Magic Valley this May Weekend
The weather is set to get warm this weekend, potentially reaching the high 80s, which means it will make for a great time to get outside and have some fun. You can pull out the kayak, the fishing poles, or perhaps do some much-needed yard work. As much as those things sound fun, relaxing, and perhaps needed, you can instead attend one of the many events taking place this weekend in the Magic Valley. Put the yard work away for another week and attend one of these many events that you won't want to miss this weekend.
Thursday, May 18 Through Saturday, May 20 - Deacon Spring Yard Sale
Start the weekend off early with a trip to Burley and see what deals you can find at the Deacon Spring Yard Sale put on by the Burley Presbyterian Church.

Thursday it will be open from 10 AM to 6 PM, Friday from 10 AM to 6 PM, and Saturday from 9 AM to 2 PM. You never know what you will find and what deals are to be had, so stop by if you are in the Burley area this weekend.
Thursday, May 18 - Business After Hours Open House
There are plenty of businesses in the Magic Valley that we drive past every day, but rarely get a chance to stop in and see what they are about. It can be because our hours don't match up or perhaps you don't know what they are so you never enter. This Thursday, The Beach Tanning Co in Buhl is hosting an after-hours open house for residents to stop by and see what they are about and have to offer. The event is from 5 PM to 7:30 PM and will be at 289 Clear Lakes Boulevard in Buhl. There will be door prizes and food. Click the link above for more details.
Thursday, May 18, and Saturday, May 20 - Spring Cookie Class
While the weather may soon feel like summer, it is technically spring.

At the Historic Wilson Theater in Rupert this weekend there will be a Spring Cookie Class teaching you how to decorate cookies.
