Over the course of the last decade I have lived here in Southern Idaho, I have driven through Shoshone dozens of times. Out of all those times, the only instances where I stopped in Shoshone I can count on one hand: to play at The Drops, to get ice cream at the Shoshone Snack Bar, and when my pregnant sister got car sick and we pulled over on the main street. Otherwise, we just drive through Shoshone on our way to other locations like Magic Reservoir, Hayspur, or Sun Valley and beyond.

That doesn't mean Shoshone isn't a cool place. When we drive through we are always intrigued by the buildings and the occasional events you can see on the lawn of the courthouse. This weekend there's a big event that would definitely be worth the stop in the small town of Shoshone.
