“Lost in the 50’s” 2016 Flirts with rain all weekend
Unfortunately participation showed the concerns of weather this year for Sandpoint’s “Lost in the 50’s”. With that said though it could have been much worse. The parade on Friday did get wet with more of a drizzle and light rain rather than the down pour that came starting late Saturday afternoon. The streets were lined with anxious spectators and were not disappointed again this year as the parade rolled by right on time.
Saturday morning showed cloudy skies with possibilities of clearing. Downtown streets of Sandpoint Idaho were closed down with the cars displayed for everyone to enjoy. With 50’s music playing, concession stands open, and the festive atmosphere created with downtown streets being closed to car traffic the 31st consecutive year of “Lost in the 50’s” eluded the hard rains that started late afternoon and evening. Continuing through Sunday night.
With many activities of the event being held indoors such as the 50’s dance and concert at the Bonner County Fairgrounds, even the rain could not dampen the event. Sandpoint was fortunate this year even with the rain. The picture here shows Farmin Park on Sunday evening with the wet empty streets. Saturday’s Farmers Market is held at Farmin Park so the booths there were grateful as well for the clear skies at least thru mid afternoon.
For those participants who stayed and braved the probability of rain we want to thank you. We were rewarded with a fantastic weekend. A fun parade for kids and adults alike. A wonderful day Saturday to stroll the streets, literally, of Sandpoint and appreciate your fine rolling works of art.
