Koulee Kids Fest, Divine Car Show are great successes

“Koulee Kids Fest was such a great time!” Grand Coulee Dam Area Executive Director Rachel Haven about last Saturday’s event. “I believe it was a success. Kids were smiling from ear to ear all over town.”

Three-year-old Cairo Billups won the iPad Mini and Beats headphones grand prize drawing that kids entered by participating in the event. 

This year’s Koulee Kids Fest featured L-Bow the Clown.

“L-Bow the clown was so much fun!” Haven said. “L-Bow’s act included unicycling and juggling, making balloon animals and hats, and the grand finale of a fire breathing performance.”

Koulee Kids Fest happened simultaneously with the Diversity Divine Auto Show and featured a variety of cars in a variety of categories.

“The car show was so cool,” Haven said. “The kids had a blast picking their favorite cars. It drew many different audiences. I really felt like we had a day with things for everyone!” 

Sam Hsieh, who organized the car show, said that the show “turned out great!”

“We had about 53 cars show up for our first show,” he said. “Some of the other car owners were shocked to learn what cars we have, just in our local community.”

“I think the show and the event met its purpose of bringing our local community together, and I am just grateful that people came and were part of it,” he continued. “I think everybody had fun and we all learned a little bit more about cars!”

“The chamber of commerce was great to allow me to have the event with their Kids Fest. Rachelle was great to work with. I want to also thank Chris Holeman and the guys at Jess Ford Detailing for helping me with organizing the show too. This show will be an annual event. Next year will be bigger and better!”
