Get ready for the Willapa Harbor Festival Parade where one highlight is the tossing of the candy to the crowd.
The Willapa Harbor Festival is only a week and a half away and Willapa Harbor Chamber of Commerce Director Michelle Layman is hard at work putting the finishing touches on the annual event. The festival will take place at is the normal location at 3rd Street Park in downtown Raymond with other events held around the downtown area.
Some changes have been made to the festival this year and residents will quickly notice there will be no cornhole tournament this year. Layman points out that this year she has less help and is 'quite a bit behind' but points out there is still plenty of great events including numerous bands.
"The festival will be great and will have a lot of great local stuff," Layman said. "Our goal is to always keep it as local as we can. This year we will be hosting the beer garden with Woohoo Winery which should be exciting. The fair is a great opportunity for families to come out and have some fun."
