I was peacefully walking along the streets of downtown Boise when I caught a lazy bear wearing a golden crown staring me in the face. What do you want? Then, a big bellied patriotic man smoking a pipe and wearing red & white striped pants crossed my path.
Where am I? The answer was Idaho’s whimsical Freak Alley.
Boise’s Freak Alley began over ten years ago when a local artist painted the inside of an alley doorway.
Today, the outdoor gallery expands from the alley to the gravel parking lot and is an exhibition for local artists, as well as a few from different parts of the United States.
