Sandpoint’s Lost in the 50′s Parade

Sandpoint, Idaho has a great tradition during a weekend every May called Lost in the 50’s. A regional staple since 1986, it kicks off Friday night with the Lost in the 50’s Parade. Showcase vehicles come from all over the western USA and Canada. Although it may not be for everybody, it’s generally a lot of fun. Kids enjoy it for the glitter and noise, while the adults get taken back to earlier days – and probably enjoy the nostalgia of the noisy cars as well! Here are some photos from recent years. These are taken on Church Street where they first enter town. There are also special guests who come to town for the parade, dances, and car show. One of the guests last year was Bowzer from Sha Na Na.
