Come stroll through the Old Town area on Friday for First Friday Art Walk. From 5-8pm take in the variety of art, live music, fashion and food.
In conjunction with First Friday Art Walk, Old Town Pocatello is introducing a new monthly event called Second Chance Saturday. The Saturday following Art Walk you will have the opportunity to see some of the artist’s works that will be shown on Friday night. Please note the businesses who will be participating have a Second Chance Saturday note included in their listing below.
