During the Main Street Mile in June, a variety of different mascots made the dash down the course. Members of the Boise Fire Department dropped their hoses and made an appearance. Buster Bronco galloped down the block, and a few other news operations brought out their representatives, but few stuck out like the handsomely decorated Boise Weekly distribution boxes. The bright red likenesses of the receptacles which house Idaho's only alternative newspaper had both style and verve. Waving to the crowd with the stub of an arm protruding from the side of the boxes, the BW mascot boxes bravely marched down Capitol Boulevard spreading the good word about the publication they proudly represented.
