The Party Begins

The week-end kicks off with live music at the Captain's Wheel tonight, and music everywhere Saturday. A big surprise awaits those of you that come in time for the parade here in Bayview. Well, I'm not good at keeping secrets. Tomorrow's parade will have the very first camels to ever walk in a North Idaho parade, or probably anywhere short of Saudi Arabia. Jeannene Christ is bringing two camels to march with the rest, so don't miss this attraction. Don't forget the art fair at the community center, either.

Very few raffle tickets remain at the Mercantile, Ralph's and the captain's Wheel. $20 may win you a cool $1000. Don't forget to head for the Bayview Fire House, where an open house will be held right after the parade until 4:00 pm. There will be music there, too. The street fair is full of fantastic arts & crafts and is in full swing today through Sunday.Later Saturday evening, around 9:30 pm the lighted boat parade will circle the bay followed by one of the best fireworks displays ever seen in this neck of the woods.

People have come from great distances for this event. We have a dentist from Mexico, a Doctor from London, England, and others from states as far away as Indiana. I'll be on the reviewing stand, announcing the parade and the raffle winners right after the parade finishes. Stop by and say hi if you want.
