17-20 Lost in the '50s. Hundreds of poodle skirts and leather jackets will be pulled from the back of the closet when the 33rd annual Lost in the ‘50s celebration rolls into town! It's Sandpoint's biggest party of the year, and includes non-stop fun all weekend long including a Thursday night rock 'n' roll concert, Friday night downtown car parade and street dance, two show and dance events featuring a who'-who list of performers from the '50s era of rock 'n' roll, plus a downtown car display. Don't miss this doo-whop of a good time! Visit the event's Facebook page for more info.
