Four free things you can do this weekend

This weekend is a great opportunity to put that spring cleaning energy into your bookshelf and get rid of all of those books that are just gathering dust.

Students from Lewis and Clark High School will be at Auntie’s Bookstore, in downtown Spokane, for the Independent Bookstore Day event on Saturday.

From 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. the students will be hosting a book drive to collect donations to fill their school’s library. Then, if you want to replace the books you donate, Auntie’s is offering a 20 percent discount on all new hardcovers in the entire store.

Arbor Day is Friday but the City of Spokane will host celebrations at Finch Arboretum Saturday.

There will be family activities, tree care tips and even opportunities for some enviornmental education. Spokane’s Master Composters will be there to teach you how to turn your yard and food waste into ‘gold for your garden.’

Jeep lovers will be flocking to Post Falls this weekend. That’s where Findlay Jeep is hosting the 2019 Jeep Fest starting Friday.

The Jeep-palooza will continue all weekend. You can enter into raffles, look at new Jeeps, go on an off roading course, or participate in a Jeep Show and Shine contest

Food trucks are about to take over Coeur d’Alene’s City Park.

The Oooza-Palooza Food Truck Rally starts at 11:00 a.m. Saturday. While it is free to attend, the food does cost money.

Some of the region’s favorite food trucks will be there, including Meltz Extreme Grilled Cheese, Mac Daddy’s macaroni, D’lish burgers and Ben and Jerry’s ice cream.
