Memorial Day weekend in Sun Valley promises to be a three-day celebration with wellness, live music and volleyball.

The Sun Valley Volleyball Classic will take place Saturday, May 29, through Monday, May 31, in Sun Valley. The event will include an indoor youth tournament for 14- to 18-year-old girls. Teams will compete on top of the ice on a Sport Court at the Sun Valley Indoor Ice Rink. Competition will consist of teams from Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Utah. Entry is $250.

On Saturday and Sunday, corporations and companies can play in a co-ed, four-person corporate challenge volleyball tournament on the Sun Valley Pavilion lawn with six grass courts with proper nets and standards. All businesses in the Wood River Valley are welcome. Entry fee is $140 and costumes and company uniforms are encouraged.

An open beach sand doubles tournament will take place Saturday and Sunday with pro player matches under the lights Saturday night on temporary sand courts, which will be located between the Sun Valley Lodge terrace and the Sun Valley Outdoor Ice Rink. Cash and prizes will be given to top three teams and best male and best female player. Volleyball professional Priscilla Lima and beach volleyball legends Ron von Hagen and Sinjin Smith will be on site watching competition and giving pointers to competing participants.

The weekend will kick off on Friday, May 28, at 5 p.m. at the Sun Valley Resort Rink with a "yoga concert" starring singer and valley resident Tyia Wilson performing alongside six yoga performers.
