WINTER BLUES got you down? Maybe you’re feeling a bit of cabin fever? Well we’ve got a cure for you! Get up off your sofa and join us downtown for the annual Sandpoint Winter Carnival! In its 43rd year, Sandpoint’s annual Winter Carnival will kick off on February 10 and run through February 21 with a list of great events for the whole family to enjoy!
The Hive is joining the celebration this year as they bring two great concerts to town for your enjoyment. On February 11, G. Love and Special Sauce will be making a very special first appearance to promote their new album “Love Saves The Day.” This alternative hip hop band is known for their unique and laid back blues sound that encompasses classic R&B. Then on February 20 The New Mastersounds will take the stage as they deliver a span of music genres that include rock, funk and soul origins. Tickets and concert information can be found at their website, LiveFromTheHive.com.
Bring the family downtown to have some fun and light up the night as the annual Parade of Lights comes to downtown Sandpoint at 5:30pm on February 12. Residents and business will fill the streets with numerous floats, marching groups and snow shovel brigades when the parade starts at City Parking Lot before advancing down Church Street and around the downtown parade route. Immediately following the parade is the Sandpoint Throw Down Rail Jam contest! Mountain Mafia and 7B Board Sports are providing a giant urban downhill rail setup for some of the Northwest’s most skilled skiers and snowboarders to compete on. Music and sound will be straight from The Hive as competitors rip it up for major prizes and respect at Jeff Jones Town Square.
Looking to sample some of Sandpoint’s delicious fare? Dine Around Sandpoint starts up on February 19 as they offer you a chance to win amazing prizes just for eating at one of the participating area restaurants!
