Downtown Boise Association

Boise’s 32nd annual Twilight Criterium will take over much of downtown on Saturday with about 350 cyclists expected to compete. This day-long event will bring several road closures to the area.

JUMP

It has been called a creative center and a community gathering place. Now primary construction is complete and JUMP is about to open its doors to the Boise community.

JUMP, or Jack’s Urban Meeting Place, was built by the J. R. Simplot Foundation in honor of Jack Simplot. He died in 2008, and since then the foundation and the Simplot family have been working to get JUMP built near the connector in downtown Boise.
