This December 31, 2013, there will be a lowering of a large scale lit-up potato from the US Bank building in downtown Boise
to commemorate the New Year and Idaho’s sesquicentennial. There will be FREE live music on two sound stages filling the streets,
spanning the Grove Plaza through the 8th street promenade. Magic shows, street performers and local food vendors
will surely make this the best new year’s eve party Boise has ever seen. A portion of proceeds from this event will
be donated to Idaho Schools and the American Red Cross.|
Exclusive partners KTVB and Peak Broadcasting will also be on hand, broadcasting live with their
variety of quality stations.
Other promotional items for the participating sponsors include additional KTVB television programming,
radio announcements across peak stations, and live worldwide streaming coverage.
