Kootenai River Days

Preparations underway for another great event

By Colin Anderson



Despite concerns that Kootenai River Days might be canceled, the Bonners Ferry Chamber received word in early June that the event can go on. Since then, organizers have been working hard to line up a schedule and make sure it’s another safe, fun and unforgettable community event.


Any chamber member who would like to have a booth at this year’s event is welcome to do so; just be sure to contact the chamber in order to reserve one. Non-members can also sign up for a booth at a cost of just $25. Businesses that would like to sponsor the events are currently being sought, and you can find out more about sponsorship opportunities at BonnersFerrychamber.org. Events and a more detailed schedule will be available on Facebook.


Here are some highlights at the time of print:

Wednesday, July 22: You can enjoy a free movie, “Moana,” though location and time have yet to be confirmed.


Thursday, July 23: It’s time to stroll about Bonners Ferry and get sipping, as the Wine Walk returns starting at 5:30pm.


Friday, July 24: Crazy Days kicks off its three days of fun. Also check out the Rod Benders Car Show. The Bonners Ferry High School cheerleading squad has been hard at work and will perform its routine downtown at Crazy Days. This is followed up by an ice cream social and some of the usual Crazy Days merriment.


Saturday, July 25: Crazy Days continues with a street fair (and a bounce house and face painters from 6 to 9pm). Don’t miss your chance to register for the Birdies for our Brothers golf scramble held at Mirror Lake Golf Course. Keep practicing your bean bag tossing so you can make a statement in the Cornhole Tournament, with various brackets available and prizes awarded to the winners. This is also the day of the All Class Reunion, which includes food, drink and live music. Don’t miss the street dance and DJ!


Events and activities are subject to change. Please check with the Bonners Ferry Chamber or via Facebook for all the latest details.
