Kuna Days

sam kunadays

The smell of funnel cakes is in the air, kids are squealing as they play, and music is blaring from speakers around you. Every August, Kuna Days is the biggest shindig in town.This year, it will be held on Friday, August 4th and Saturday, August 5th. It is held at the Kuna Park, where vendors set up tents and booths to sell their merchandise.

You can find merchandise ranging from sunglasses to car parts. Fair food is also sold, including turkey legs, funnel cakes, snow cones, and more. Many vendors are people who live in Kuna, and are just trying to make some extra money. Sports teams also use Kuna Days to help raise money to buy jerseys and equipment. Last year, the boys’ football team and girls’ soccer team both set up booths to sell merchandise. Make sure when you go this year to  stop by these booths to  support our Kuna High School teams!  I asked Kelsey Miller how Kuna Days helped out her soccer team.  “We raised a lot of money from Kuna Days and other fundraisers. And we were also able to get a sponsor from Idaho Pizza, three Kuna Soccer practice t-shirts, and a Lady Kaveman Kuna Soccer backpack.”

The environment of Kuna Days  is extremely family friendly. The face painting booths are definitely the main attraction for the delight of  the younger children to choose their favorite design. Kuna Days is also a great place to meet your friends and just hang out. Kristen Hansen: “My favorite thing about Kuna Days is being able to get together with friends and having fun.” There are covered picnic areas and plenty of tents to browse through.

On the last night of the event, fireworks are set off just above the park. People gather together after dark to watch the beautiful display. Make sure to bring a blanket or foldable chairs so you have a comfortable place to sit. Kacie Andrus: “Me and my friends usually go to Idaho Pizza and then we bring blankets and lawn chairs and watch the fireworks.

Many people have their own special traditions and ways to celebrate this great occasion.
