Rockies – the winners

Saturday evening, The Rockies happened. As an in-person event. Outdoors.

There was sun, and rain, and wind, and even some lightning in the distance. But Idaho spring weather aside, much credit to the Boise Advertising Federation and Idaho Advertising Federation for pulling off the show, making it comfortable for those who attended in person, and for offering a livestream for those that chose to watch from afar.

And now, a few highlights.
