SANDPOINT — Happy Thanksgiving! Along with family, feasts and fun, we’ve got a bounty of entertaining festivities in store this week.

Top of our to-do- list is The Shook Twins making their annual homecoming for a pair of ‘Giving Thanks’ concerts scheduled for Friday at the Pearl Theater and the Panida Theater on Saturday.

Burn a few extra calories and earn an extra piece of pie by joining in this morning’s Turkey Trot Fun Run-Walk or get out for a T-Day movie by catching ‘Murder on the Orient Express’ tonight (and into next week) at the Panida.

Looking ahead, POAC brings The Nutcracker to town on Dec. 3.

Here’s the skinny on it all:
