SANDPOINT — Based on the lineup for this week, it feels like summer activity is building speed. Don’t worry, we’ll eventually get some summer weather, too!

Sandpoint Community Sing is back tonight at Downtown Yoga and there’s a Neighborhood Storytelling event this evening at Matchwood Brewing.

On Saturday, check out the special event at the Granary Arts District starting at noon, then swing over to the museum for a special unveiling of a cool, new exhibit. There’s a social dance at Community Hall that same evening and, on Sunday, Northwest BachFest presents ‘Great Scott!’ with Scott Joplin piano music at Pend d’Oreille Winery.

Starting today, the Panida rolls out two films — one in the main theater and one in the Little Theater — and on Tuesday, Music Conservatory of Sandpoint has a big student concert on the Panida stage.

But that’s only the tip of the iceberg:
