Kick off your shoes and come get Lost in the ’50s

Print Article

SANDPOINT — Here it is, one of the best weekends of the year when it comes to Sandpoint being jam-packed with fun! Needless to say, the undisputed star of the show is Lost in the ‘50s, kicking off (no pun intended) with the Rock n’ Roll Heaven concert tonight at the fairgrounds and picking up steam through the weekend with the vintage car parade Friday through town, the street dance right after that and two amazing shows on Friday and Saturday nights at the fairgrounds.

But wait, there’s more — the Lost in the ‘50s Car Show takes over downtown all day Saturday and the event closes with a fun run and car rally on Sunday.

While you’re out and about, be sure to take in the good vibes at the Sandpoint Farmers Market on Saturday with live music and the early fruits of local farms and gardens. On top of it all, live music seems to be everywhere this weekend. Big fun!
