SANDPOINT — June is upon us — nearly, anyway — and we’ve got an early summer sampler of things to do coming your way.

Friday night, the 3-day run of the Animation Show of Shows kicks off at the Panida and Matchwood Brewing Co. hosts a very cool fireside community sing, where you can join friends, old and new, as you share songs in a session led by Kristine Rae.

On Saturday, the first day of June, POAC hosts its Masquerade Art party at the Heartwood Center and Sandpoint Parks & Rec. brings us the Sand Creek Paddlers Challenge, with registration starting at 9 a.m. at the City Beach Pavilion.

Also Saturday, the Friends of the Library hold their fabulous used book sale, The Museum is free all day and the amazing ToneDevil Bros. are playing at the Pend d’Oreille Winery that evening.

On Sunday, Annie Welle is on piano at the Pend d’Oreille Winery tasting room — always great!
