The big week-end is almost upon us. Entertainment galore. But wait, there's more. This year, thanks to Chan Karupiah, owner of five Bayview Marinas, the kids will have their venue as well. Chan has arranged to have a carnival which is being set up in the large parking lot across from the newly opened Bayview Mercantile.
Adult entertainment as usual, will be provided by local bars. At JD's, from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm, The Wilsons will perform. The evening entertainment will be provided by Dave Green and the sidemen. For Sunday morning survivors, bloody mary's and red beer will be mercifully provided.
The Captain's Wheel just finished the largest stage in town which will feature the Gill Rivas Jam, outside Saturday. Friday evening will feature the "Usual Suspects," followed Saturday night with Last Chance performing inside.
The Floating Patio at the boat Launch will feature rock & roll with "Three Piece Suit" entertaining Friday and Saturday nights, 8:00 pm to midnight.
As previously reported, the usual fireworks display which is coordinated by the Bayview Chamber, but financed by you. Please note the donation cans located throughout Bayview businesses and provide for next year's festivities. A lighted boat parade will kick things off Saturday evening about 9:00 pm, followed by north Idaho's best fireworks show at 10:00 pm.
Come on down for Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Oops, I almost forgot. Friday am, the 4th will be a red, white and blue pancake breakfast with blueberry and strawberry toppings smothered in whipped cream, plus sausages. Donations are appropriate. It will be held from 8:30 am to 11:00 am at the Bayview Community Center.
