Join us for the following volunteer event to help children in our community. We’ll be putting together backpacks full of food for kids over the holiday break.
The Post Falls Food Bank works closely with the Post Falls School District to provide food for over 150 students over the holiday break. These children who are living at or below the federal poverty level and are at risk of not getting enough to eat over the long break. Nutritionally balanced food is identified specifically for this program. The food packs are purchased by the Post Falls Food Bank and need our help to assemble these backpacks.
Please sign up with the link below to help us keep track of how many volunteers we’ll have and how much food and drinks we’ll need to provide for the party!

Every second Friday of the month from April-December, stroll through beautiful downtown Coeur d’Alene and enjoy the many galleries representing locally and nationally acclaimed artists.
The 4th annual Mardi Gras Krewe d’Alene in the CDA Resort Plaza Shops. As you stroll through the “streets” of New Orleans in this re-creation of the French Quarter, you’ll find samples of delicious New Orleans’-style fare from up to 10 local favorite restaurants who are competing in a lively cookoff for Chef’s choice and People’s choice awards. With fun street entertainment throughout there is so much to do.
In addition to the featured restaurants, you can enjoy stilt walkers, jugglers, fortune tellers, henna tatooists, body painters, artists in action, and live musicians. Enjoy a drink in Lafitte’s Blacksmith Shop Bar, a re-creation of the oldest bar in the country. Sip on a Café Au Lait and savor delightful beignets in the re-creation of the historic Café Du Monde. And new this year is a performance by the drag queens Nova Kaine and Les Gurlz.
Find the baby in the King Cake and reign over the 2019 Mardi Gras, leading the traditional second line led by a live jazz trio. And as they say in New Orleans, “laissez les bon temps rouler” which means “let the good times roll”!
