- Cupid’s Undie Run
Join hundreds of half-naked people in a fun-run to support the Children’s Tumor Foundation on Saturday, February 13th. The party starts at noon, and the race begins at 2PM. Come out with your significant other and do something silly for a good cause!
- Boise Creek Outfitters Dinner Sleigh Ride
On Friday or Saturday, enjoy a sleigh ride to a cozy cabin in the woods where a steak dinner will be waiting for you. If that doesn’t sound magical, I don’t know what else does! This is the last month to enjoy a sleigh ride this year, so you don’t want to miss out. At $84.99 per person, all you have to do is bring your date and maybe a couple of blankets.

- Hot Air Balloon Ride
If you’re not afraid of heights, then this is something everyone should do at least once. You will never experience anything so exciting. Boise Hot Air Company is offering a Groupon Deal. Glide through Lake Harbor for 45 minutes, and then enjoy a champagne toast once you’re back on the ground.
