This year’s Man Show Expo heralds its array of masculine products and services with a rumbling convoy of army tanks and Humvees. These steel behemoths throttle alongside motorcycles and tricked out cars for a weekend peppered with special events and competitions. Men and women alike can get their fill of testosterone as they stroll the expo’s aisles lined with wares, brochures, and demonstrations from vendors specializing in hot tubs, A/V components, exercise equipment, and translating grunts to English.
On Saturday at 1 p.m., expo-goers can meet and greet Boise State Bronco football players breaking from an offseason. At 2 p.m. on both days, car-show judges award winners in multiple categories. Saturday evening’s Ms. Man Show Competition drapes laurels on the fairest of entrants, whereas Sunday’s elk, duck, turkey, and goose callers mimic honks and hoots that have helped them infiltrate woodland society.
2013 Chili & Salsa Fest
What makes a chili recipe the best there is? The judges at this year's Chili & Salsa fest will have to figure that out for themselves as they award entries of chili—and salsa—in this year's competitions. At Julius M. Kleiner Memorial Park, the scents of fall food mingle in the air, making it tricky for patrons to decide whose wares to sample. And as evening comes on, so does the crowd, as the event shifts to watching college and NFL football on the big screen.
