This is the 39th year for the event, which strives to give the public a chance to get a new take on history with firsthand peeks at life at various points in time.
This year, more than 30 scarecrows designed by schools, businesses and individuals from around the community will go on display beginning Monday, Oct. 1, and running through Halloween.
The three-day art fair and fundraiser for the Boise Art Museum will fill Julia Davis Park with 250 artists (65 of which are new this year) from around the country, alongside food vendors and live music. The event kicks off Friday, Sept. 7, and continues through Sunday, Sept. 9.
The production is a play-within-a-play, in which actors play actors and stage crew who are stuck in one of the most woebegone plays ever--the fictional and aptly titled Nothing On. It doesn't help that the cast members (the fictional ones in the fictional play--confused yet?) come with their own colorful, questionable and altogether unimpressive resumes. The result is a tribute to comedic timing and all-around silliness.
