Off the chopping block

After a 15-year hiatus, the Bonner County Fairgrounds is thrilled to bring back the Timberfest celebration June 4. It’s a sawdust-flyin’ great time for the entire family, and features exhibitions at 10 a.m., noon and 2 p.m. with skill-testing events such as the cross-cut back, hot saw, axe throw, underhand cut and more. Plus, check out the wacky wrestling competitions involving gelatin, and a dance at 7 p.m. with the Devon Wade Band. Bonner County, here’s a chance to get back to your logger-lovin’ roots!

Suds and sunshine

Chances are, enjoying a cold brew on a July afternoon ranks right up there on your summer relaxation list. If so, check out the third annual Sandpoint Beerfest from noon to 5 p.m. July 9 next to Trinity at City Beach. This afternoon party features 20 local craft brews from Inland Northwest Craft Brewers; they’ll be on hand to describe the creativity and complexity of their beers, so it’s informative and fun! Games, food and music complement this great lakeside event. Cheers to beer! Sponsored by the Greater Sandpoint Chamber of Commerce.

Film fans, head outdoors!

Rainbow of fun

Schweitzer Mountain Resort amps up the summertime craziness with a Huckleberry Color Fun Run & Walk, featuring a 5k and 2.5k, Aug. 7 on the mountain. Participants run or walk through the forest and get covered with color tossed by the forest urchins at several different zones. At high noon, meet at the race finish for the group color toss – definitely an event not to be missed! Sunglasses provided, but safety goggles and a handkerchief would be a good idea to bring along!
