Chamber to launch annual mid-June events
The 10th Annual Koulee Kids Fest and the Saturday Market will each take off Saturday, June 14.
Both are sponsored by the Grand Coulee Dam Area Chamber of Commerce.
The Saturday Market, featuring fruits and vegetables, local produce and arts and crafts, opens at Midway Avenue and Morrison Street at 8:30 a.m. and goes until 12:30 p.m. weekly through Sept.13.
Market manager Cheryl Hoffman (509.431.1027) can provide information on securing a booth for the market. Or for information interested parties can call the chamber office (509.633.3074).
The Koulee Kids Fest offers a passport for fun and excitement. Kids pick up passports at the Visitor Center, Saturday Market or Coulee Hardware. All the information will be provided when they pick up their passport.
Kids and their parents take part in six featured events and show up at the Grand Gallery Theatre at 3 p.m. for the drawing for a Kindle Fire, an iPod and a lot more. Winners must be present and 12 or under to win.
They can stay for a free magic show, starring Dick Frost, a 45-minute event billed to fascinate young and old alike.
