The week has dragged on, and work has likely been wearing you down. It is the part of the year that is the longest without a work holiday, and the weeks and months without time off can take a toll. Many are worn out, and living weekend to weekend until Memorial Day rolls around. Instead of wasting the weekend away, have some fun by attending one or multiple of the many events that are taking place in the Magic Valley.
