Big Fourth festival this week

Special section included


Music, food and fireworks.

Sounds like Festival of America time in the coulee, when patriots can celebrate America Friday and Saturday at the park below the Visitor Center, with a guide to the action below.

The Grand Coulee Dam Area Chamber of Commerce, the organizer of the event, has put together live music, kids activities, a big show in the park, fireworks and more to entertain local residents as well as the thousands of visitors who crowd the park and surrounding areas each year.

Listen to the music of MacDaddy, Tuxedo Junction and the Olson Bros. bands.

Fifty vendors will provide food and product in the park.

An “Inflatable Village,” a romp particularly for the kids, will help to make the time clearly a family time.

New this year is the chamber’s Beer Garden, located on town shop property facing Columbia Avenue, where adults can go for a beverage break and a retreat from the crowd.

All in all, a great experience filled with possibilities for everyone.

And don’t forget the Laser Light Show, kicking off just before the fireworks over Grand Coulee Dam.

All the fun is explained in the special Festival of America section with this week’s Star newspaper.

And by the way, when you see a chamber of commerce member, say “thanks” for the creativity and hard work it takes to put on the festival.
