Sandpoint Classic Boat Festival

When: Fridays, Saturdays. Continues through July 12 2014

It’s a regular B&B weekend up at Sandpoint — a boats and beers weekend, that is. The 11th annual Classic Boat Festival kicks off Friday evening with a boat run, giving seafarers ample time to show off sweet antique vessels. The event continues Saturday, offering a kids boat-building booth and many model boat and vendor booths. Also on Saturday is the first-ever Sandpoint Beerfest, at MickDuff’s Brewing Co. The event, free to get into, offers beers from MickDuff’s, 21st Amendment Brewery, Alaskan Brewing Co., Bale Breaker Brewing Company, No-Li Brewhouse and others, along with local wine from Pend d'Oreille Winery. The Beerfest runs from 1-4 pm; local musician Devon Wade also will perform.
