Colossal Collective is a group of creative individuals that volunteer their time to build large-scale puppets with donations and grant money for music festivals in the Pacific Northwest. The group has built puppets like Jungo, the giant gorilla that made an appearance at Treefort 2017, to bring "child-like wonder" to festival attendees. This year at the Treefort Music Festival, Colossal Collective will debut Penelopeacock, a colossal peacock puppet featuring LED lights and an animated personality.
Construction workers tore into the former Smoky Davis building on Monday morning, demolishing the longtime smoked-meat restaurant that was forced to close due to the ongoing construction at the intersection of State Street and Veterans Memorial Parkway. Vanishing Boise, a group dedicated to preserving local landmarks, streamed the demolition live on Facebook.
