This Weekend in North Idaho

This Weekend North Idaho

Hidy-ho neighbor! It’s Friday again so you know what that means… time for a This Weekend in North Idaho post (insert roaring applause here).

Hope you all had a great week and were able to soak in some sun. We had our second official softball practice yesterday at Ramsey and I think it went great. We’re gonna kick… butt (yay for self-censorship!).

There’s a lot going on this weekend, so let’s get to it!

Arsenic and Old Lace
This Lake City Playhouse show runs May 2-18. It’s about two old ladies who “love to serve up a nice glass of wine and arsenic to their guests with just a pinch of cyanide.” Their nephew discovers what his aunts are hiding while dealing with his crazy brothers – one of which is a murderous psychopath and another who thinks he is Teddy Roosevelt. Shows are at 7:30 p.m. with a Sunday matinee at 2 p.m.

    1. Who misses as a major community event the “soft” opening of the east 1/3red the major $8+ million park with kids descending on the just today opened playground at McEuen Park while B-ball players took shots on the colorful new courts. Tennis courts had players earlier than some were there to see. Sorenson Elementary students were there for classes by the library before being 1st on the colorful playground equipment accessible to all. Lots played the musical instruments, with some kids in swimming trunks hoping to play in the waterpark. It’s not on until Memorial Day they found. As of about 3 pm the walk around the whole park is again opened with a stop on the new wood deck overlook on the lake by the soon to be finished Harbor House. A fellow was actually headed out there with a fishing pole and tackle box about noon. Several boats were launched by the looks of the trailers in their spaces in the parking lot. Makes you wonder if the advocates to keep the launch are ready to step up with efforts to fund an expanded marina and other improvements(?). Anyway, it is a great day, and the new park and covered parking lot off the water, speaks for itself. Every trip down discovers new amenities and features in the best park ever. everyone needs to see and enjoy it.

      1. Thanks for sharing, hoping to check it out today. Unfortunately I had to work yesterday and couldn’t make it down.

I want to hear from you! Leave a reply.
