This weekend in North Idaho

July 12, 2013

I apologize for my absence this week. I’m not going to lie, I can’t remember a week – other than when we got married – that’s been this hectic. But here I am, ready to tell you what’s going on this weekend.

Coeur d’Alene Art Walk  – Tonight is art walk downtown. Come check out local artists and their work at several locations along Sherman Ave. Click the link for a complete list of this month’s supporters.

Hayden Triathlon – So it’s probably too late to decide to compete it a tri – but if you’re just crazy enough, maybe not! Even if you’re not competing, come cheer on the athletes and scope out your competition for next year. This sprint-distance course starts and ends at Honeysuckle Beach. I’ll be there cheering on Kyle and taking pics. Hope to see you there!

Wallace Blues Festival – The second annual Wallace Blues Festival is this weekend and is $30 at the door. There are over 20 performers scheduled for this year over the course of Saturday and Sunday. Last year my step-niece was able to perform and said it was a great experience.There’s a beer garden, BBQ and a pancake feed on Sunday. Check out the link for more information.


Coeur d’Alene Garden Tour – A favorite tradition for my mom and I, the garden tour allows you to take a peek into some of the most beautiful yards in the Hayden, Coeur d’Alene and Post Falls area. There are five gardens on the tour this year and there’s usually some fun vendors set up selling unique garden art and supplies at each one.

27th Annual Wooden Boat Show

Sandpoint Classic Boat Festival – While the Wooden Boat Show is one of the highlights of the summer in Coeur d’Alene, Sandpoint has their own version, which I’ve heard is great! I would love to go check it out some time and I hope if you go you’ll send me some photos to use!

Upcoming Events:

Of course there’s going to be a lot of live music at the Moose, Country Club, Splash, 315, and the like. And don’t forget about the Hayden Farmer’s Market on Saturday morning.

I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for a drink! Happy Weekend!
