Scenes from the river

The North Pend Oreille County annual celebration Down River Days began in 1956, making this year its 61st. Celebrations kicked-off on Friday, July 28 with Crazy Lady Softball at Ione Field. Saturday was jam packed with events, including the 58th annual Down River Days Parade. Sunday's Snowmobile Water Cross Competition, always a highlight, was enjoyed by competitors and spectators alike. If you missed out, next year's event will be July 27-29. Photos courtesy Lanie Lince.
