Things to Do


"The Warhawk Air Museum Education Program is dedicated to igniting each student’s appreciation and respect for the relationship between freedoms we have today and the sacrifices made to preserve them. Our country’s history is its strength. It is the cord that runs through connecting the past with the present and hope of our future. Embedded in the past are the lessons we can learn to help us create a lasting future, a future of hope for our nation and the world. The Warhawk Air Museum offers the opportunity to experience these lessons through the historical memorabilia and personal memories that are being preserved here, and through our unique education program." // Photo credit Jim Raeder //

Boasting a $400,000 payoff, the Snake River Stampede is one of the top 10 regular season professional rodeos in the nation.  The Snake River Stampede has evolved from a small, local bucking horse competition in the early 1900’s to a major professional sports event.

The rodeo features bareback bronc riding, saddle bronc riding, bull riding, steer wrestling, tie-down roping, team roping and ladies’ barrel racing, plus mutton busting for the kids and the famous Snake River Stampeders Night Light Drill Team.

Attendance is approximately 60,000 for the five-day, six-performance event.
