2017 Fall Events In Boise Idaho

Boise Community Events Fall 2017

The Idaho Steelheads Hockey season

The Idaho Steelheads have been a big part of the Boise community since their beginnings in 1996! They’ve won two Kelly Cup championships, three western conference titles, and a significant chunk of their players advance to the NHL! They are rockstars on the rink, and right in our backyard. Going to a game makes for a good date night or a night of fun for the entire family. Amenities are very accommodating - they’ll even go so far as to announce your birthday over the speaker system! Going to a Steelheads game is a MUST this fall.

Would you rather get a feel for the ice rink before committing to a full game? Call CenturyLink Arena at (208) 424-2200 to schedule a tour! These public tours are only available by reservation. You can also listen to the games on the radio, station KTIK 1350 AM, or through the internet on their website.

Meridian Idaho LDS Temple Public Open House

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is holding a free, public open house of its newest temple in Meridian, Idaho, just off Linder Road. It will start this saturday (Oct. 21) and will continue Mondays through Saturdays until Nov.11. The temple will be officially dedicated on Nov. 19, afterwhich only worthy church members may enter. The Meridian Idaho Temple is set to be the 158th operating temple of the LDS faith.

Perhaps you’ve driven by the Boise Temple, across from Edwards Cinemas, and wondered what it looks like on the inside. Well, wonder no more! This is a wonderful opportunity for members and non-members alike to take a look at the inside of a temple and satisfy their curiosity. Tour guides will answer questions and explain the functions of each room.

According to Tom Lindhardt, who is the project manager of the temple for the last 5 years, the mountainous region, especially the Sawtooth Mountains, heavily influenced the temple’s unique design. “It was just a hay field,” said Lindhardt. “[The temple has] kind of a unique shape and design. … It doesn't have the traditional tall spires of a lot of the Latter-day Saint temples… It has a titanium shingle in it that changes color depending on the sunlight, kind of from a brown to a gold to a tan,” he explained.

Sounds like a fun, educational, and spiritual learning opportunity! Don’t forget to make a reservation, available through this website or through the Temple Open House Reservation Center (855-537-2000).
