Annual Party in the Park a Success!

Annual Party in the Park a Success!

Our annual event was held June 28th. Despite dire weather predictions, the morning was cool and dry - a nice day for the event. Nearly 200 runners were out on the trails, and we had some wonderful entertainment this year: Ultimate Frisbee, the High Valley Riders equestrian drill team, King County Sheriff’s Posse, riders from the Ellensburg Rodeo, the Ixtapa Dancing Horses, and an exhibition of mules.

Kids had lots of fun with pony rides, a petting zoo, face painting, clowns, the Angry Birds game, a donkey dash, construction crafts, and a boat race. Everyone enjoyed a great pancake and bacon breakfast. All in all, a great event this year.

A huge thank to all the VOLUNTEERS who helped to set up and the event and to all our SPONSORS for the event!!
