Kids and families are all heading to the Willard Arts Center in Idaho Falls for the annual Snake River Roaring Youth Jam.
The event started today and will go until Saturday.
Every day from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. there will be art activities and a reader’s theater.
There are also performances in the Colonial Theater; one of the performances is from the Trout Fishing in America group.
Today the kids were designing and decorating their own masks. The best part is all events are free.
“Let’s see, one it’s pretty hot outside so I think that this is a great chance for kids to come inside and to still have some educational
structure and some activities to participate in, also it just provides access to materials and opportunities to try new media that they may not have the opportunity to otherwise” said the executive director for the Idaho Falls art council Jill Barnes.
A reminder that the Snake River Roaring Youth Jam is usually at the greenbelt in Idaho Falls but this year it’s being held at the Willard
Arts Center because of construction at the greenbelt.
