TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KLIX) – Throughout the course of a year, plenty of events are planned in and around Twin Falls. But if you ask Lynette Neibaur which is her favorite, she’ll tell you without hesitation that it’s Western Days.

She might be a little biased: Neibaur is chairwoman of the Western Days Committee. But, she says, if you don’t believe her, just come out to the events this weekend and see for yourself.

The three-day event starts today at 4:30 p.m. and ends Sunday at 7 p.m.

There’s not a whole lot new to this year’s celebration – “it looks a lot like the 34th Western Days,” she said on Thursday – but there’ll be a lot of the same things that every year attract the crowds.

For starters, the Western Days Parade, which kicks off at 9 a.m. Saturday and lasts usually for a good three hours or more.

Neibaur didn’t yet have an exact count on the number of float entries in this year’s parade, but said it’s more than 120. Last year there were about 140 entries.

After the parade, you can shop the vendors and listen to live music. This year’s headliner is “Cash’d Out,” Neibaur said. “Royal Bliss,” who has performed at past Western Days, will visit this year’s celebration.

There also will be lots of vendors, activities for kids, and a 3-on-3 basketball tourney with young people from across the valley.

“It’s always a great turnout. It’s the biggest event in Twin Falls,” Neibaur said. “There are a lot of events that happen in Twin Falls throughout the year, but this one really is more centered on family fun.”
