I visit Main Street every time I am in Pocatello. Every Weds. Afternoon, early even in the summer they have live music, vendors and food. Check out the antique shops.

This city is a pretty cool one, I just wish they had a bit more down in old town. There are some great restaurants and bars, but not much else.
