BOISE -- Idaho is place with a ton to do, and while most people know that -- they don't know where to start.
The first annual Boise Rec Fest is looking to change all that, hoping to give Idahoans a convenient look at all there is to do across the Gem State.
Dozens of exhibits will all be found in one place this weekend -- and that place is Ann Morrison Park.
The main goal of the Boise Rec Fest is to get people off the couch, to experience all that Idaho's great outdoors have to offer.
"Learn about all the different recreational opportunities there are here in Idaho, also to support the local community. Almost all the vendors here are from Idaho, and just because it will be a good, fun and educational time," said Brett Adler, Boise Rec Fest.
Beginning Saturday at 10 a.m., Ann Morrison Park will be filled with more than 80 exhibits encouraging all of us to recreate - hense the name of the festival.
"There's a lot at Boise Rec Fest for kids. First of all there's a tire stage dedicated to kids, it's all kids, young people performing, and then we also have youth golf, youth tennis, basketball, the wing center has an activity area. Boise Parks and Recs mobile rec van is here, so there's a lot going on for kids," said Adler.
The Boise Rec Fest is going to use most of the park with all of its events.
There will be an area where kids can compete in different sports as well as experience others.
There will be a food area with a beer and wine garden, and there will also be live music for everyone to enjoy.
There are places for people to park -- paid parking will be available in a lot on the corner of Shoreline and Americana.
There's also parking available downtown.
But since this is a Rec Fest, organizers want people to -- what else --recreate to the park -- in other words, bike, run or walk.
The Boise Rec Fest begins at 10 a.m. and will run until 8 p.m. Saturday.
The festival will also be going on Sunday from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m.
