The Lakeside Liberty Fest will be held Saturday through Monday at Legacy Park in downtown McCall with an adult volleyball tournament, outdoor movie, vendors, a bounce house and fireworks.

 Friday A ribbon cutting for the renovated Brown Park on Payette Lake will be held at noon on Friday. The park reopened this month following about $1.6 million in improvements over the last two years. The project improved public access along the park’s shoreline and reduced erosion from lake waves. The work also added new pathways in the 1.8-acre park and added features that emphasize the site’s history as a sawmill. The ceremony also will feature the blowing of the original mill whistle, which was restored last year as a public art display. 

Saturday, the celebration will continue at 10 a.m. at the Legacy Park sand court with an adult volleyball tournament hosted by McCall-Donnelly High School’s volleyball team. The event is open to ages 16 and older, and teams must have at least one female player. Check-in will begin at 9:30 a.m. with games starting at 10 a.m. Cost is $40 per team. Registration deadline is Friday at noon. Visit mccallrec.com for more information or to sign up. 

The festivities on Sunday will include the outdoor showing of “Captain America: The First Avenger” at dusk at the park. Attendees are encouraged to be prepared for cool temperatures and to bring blankets and low-profile chairs. 

Monday Ages 8 and older can play in the Pickleball by the Lake tournament on Monday beginning at 9 a.m. The event will be in a round-robin format, with 10 players per event playing a minimum of five games. Women’s Doubles will be from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., followed by Men’s Doubles from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and Mixed Doubles from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Cost is $25 per player, and registration is required. Write to TamaraInIdaho@ gmail.com to register. All registration fees will go to the Valley County Pickleball Club’s efforts to build new courts in the county. 

At 10 a.m. Monday, a yoga class for all ages will be held at the Legacy Park sundial led by Julie Whitescarver. The traditional fireworks display will be held over Payette Lake at dusk. No alcoholic beverages will be permitted in any lakefront city park.
