Organizers need vendors, volunteers for Independence Day
June 5, 2012
Organizers need vendors and volunteers to make the Down Home 4th of July and Heritage Day Celebration — Issaquah’s annual Independence Day celebration — a success.
The action starts at 10 a.m. July 4 as participants gather and register for the Kids, Pets ‘n’ Pride Parade. The parade starts at 11 a.m.
Revelers then head to Veterans’ Memorial Park for a hay hunt, three-legged and gunnysack races, pony rides, face painting, bouncy houses, and a slug race and beauty pageant. Participants must provide their own slugs. Save room for a pie-eating contest at about 1:30 p.m.
In order to present the celebration, organizers need volunteers to participate in setup and tear-down, and to work in the retail area and at activity stations.
Organizers offer booths to nonprofit organizations, arts and crafts vendors, and commercial ventures.
