Salmon Days Festival organizers need folks to — pardon the pun — swim on down to Pickering Barn on Wednesday to sign up as festival volunteers.

The festival sign-up party is 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the barn, 1730 10th Ave. N.W. Participants receive a free Ohfishal designer Salmon Days Volunteer T-shirt and enjoy dinner, courtesy of Timber Ridge at Talus.

Organizers need festival volunteers to spend for a few hours selling retail items, assist arts vendors by booth sitting for a short time and complete many other tasks. The available tasks include:
