RIGGINS Riggins 22nd annual Hot Summer Nights 2014, “Spinning with the Stars and Cars,” is just a long week away at the Riggins City Park! Each day gets you into the activities for $5 per person or $20 per immediate family; children under 6 get in free. No pets and no coolers. There is a food booth and a beer garden as well as a 4-N-1 combo waterslide for the youngsters, fun games for kids, photo ops, and ASK making sno-cones and doing face painting.
The Hot Summer Nights weekend begins Friday, July 25, with gates opening at 4 p.m. to the sound of music by Dub and Dave entertaining from 4-6:30 p.m. Our feature of the night is our sizzling talent show with $1,500 cash prizes beginning at 7 p.m. with Julie McClanahan singing the National Anthem at 6:45 p.m. to start the evening of talent. The famous Canyon Camillions made up of “local talent” will share “A Really Big Show” right after the first division of talent. The night will be filled with wonderful talent from locals and those from elsewhere with prizes awarded after each division.
Saturday, July 26, Hot Summer Nights activities will begin at noon with music by DJ Scribbles from noon-4 p.m. while the antique cars roll into Riggins City Park. Ken Harris and Carmel Crock will entertain with music from 7-8:30 p.m. leading into Saturday night’s big feature, Idaho’s own High Street Band from Nampa with tunes from the 50s and 60s firing your way for dancing and giving you the time of your life from 9 p.m. to midnight!
There are several SRHS class reunions gathering together for the weekend. Some alums will take a tour of Riggins Elementary School and Salmon River High School reliving their old school days. They each have their own agendas during the day, but most will join us in the Riggins City Park for the talent show Friday night and/or the High Street Band dance Saturday.
