Spokane Valley

Things to do, places to be

If you are still looking for something to do this weekend, there are a couple of options to consider. The City of Spokane Valley will host its first free outdoor summer movie showing in Mirabeau Park on Saturday. Earlier this year residents were able to vote on which movies they wanted shown. The animated PG film "Despicable Me" will show at 9:15 p.m. Saturday. The city's Parks and Recreation Department will have some activities in the park starting an hour before showtime, so head over there early and make a night of it.

Another option is taking a drive Saturday (the weather is supposed to be nice) down to Latah for the fifth annual "Cruzin the Palouse to Latah" car and truck show from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The event is sponsored by the Cruzin Inland Northwest Car Club, formerly known as the Cruzin Corvettes. In addition to classic cars and trucks there will also be carnival games, balloon fights, barbecue, raffles, a beer garden and more. The Latah Post Office is even getting in on the fun by offering Indianapolis 500 stamps and a special postmark. Latah is about 35 miles south of Spokane Valley on Highway 27.

So there are your choices, though you can do both if you're feeling ambitious.
