The Friends of Coeur d’Alene will conclude a four-month celebration of the 125th Anniversary of Coeur d’Alene Park in Browne’s Addition with Parkfest on the grounds of the Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture with music and art, classic cars and a showing of the movie, “The Music Man.”

The day will kick off at 3 pm with the music of the Jesse Weston’s Rhythm and Blues Band. The band was voted Best New Blues Band by the Inland Empire Blues Society in 2015. 
A Classic Car Show in front of the Campbell House and a restored vintage fire truck will be on display for visitors to view and ask questions of the owners.

The drawing for the winner of an acrylic-on-canvas original painting depicting turn-of-the-century Coeur d’Alene Park by Patti Simpson Ward will be held at 4 pm. The artist will be featured at a “meet & greet” between 3 and 4 pm. 

Beer and Wine will be sold on the MAC Garden near the band. An ice cream truck and the Christ Kitchen Food Truck will provide refreshments. SpoCats, an oldies trio that plays early rockabilly, swing, do-wop and '50s pop music will entertain between 5:30 and 6:30 pm. 

The finale of the celebration will begin at 7:10 pm when the sun sets and the movie “The Music Man” will be shown in the MAC Amphitheater.
