From the parade down Iler Street to last call at the beer garden, the 2017 Moxee Hop Festival won't soon be forgotten.
For the second consecutive year, a pair of Sea Gals even graced the grounds of the Moxee City Park, where thousands beat the triple-digit heat with icy treats, cool music and the soothing shade of the town's towering trees...
I have a goal to see all the lighthouses in the United States and for that matter, everywhere, before I die! I love them. Each one of them tells a story. You would be surprised at some of the history that our lighthouses tell right here in the state of Washington. They are truly incredible. I have seen the lighthouse at Cape Disappointment and it was pretty cool. But, the Grays Harbor Lighthouse at Westport is also amazing.
Thursday's (July 27) Downtown Summer Nights music was as hot as the weather! Spokane's legendary Too Slim and the Taildraggers, along with West Pasco's Chase Craig, added extra heat with two smokin' sets that had every foot on North Front Street tappin'!
Children's Miracle Network is such an amazing cause. They help out the NIC unit at Virginia Mason Memorial, Children's Village and many other places in the Yakima Valley. And the really great thing about CMN is that the money stays local! All of us at Townsquare Media got to be part of the Children's Village Family/Radio Station Reveal party this week, and it was a blast!
I love airplanes, helicopters and anything that flies. I have the worst eyes, so I cannot fly a plane. The next best thing is remote-controlled aircraft. You still need to see, but at least you aren't putting any passengers at risk. HA! There is a really cool group from Yakima that has a ton of remote-controlled aircraft. They also do quite a bit of charity work. The Yakima Valley Aero Modelers head to Zillah this Saturday (July 22) for their Veterans Airlift event.
I grew up in Wyoming and I considered myself fairly lucky. I mean, there is some of the best hunting and fishing in the world there. Also, Jackson Hole and Yellowstone National Park, as well. We used to go to them all of the time. Until I moved to Washington, I thought Wyoming was the greatest state. Since I have lived in Washington, Wyoming now comes in second.
Yakima Valley Pet Rescue is an excellent cause. They help find homes for thousands of animals. Dogs, cats and even birds. They had fundraising event, Paws Up for a Purpose, on Saturday in the parking lot of Hop Nation. It was fun and they raised some dough for the animals.
I most recently went on a crazy road trip across five states. I started in Washington, went through Oregon, Idaho, Utah and Wyoming. Most of that drive on Interstate 84 is nothing but desert. Crazy boring desert. There is also a lot to see -- even in the desert -- but, sometimes when you get a little drowsy from driving and seeing the exact same sagebrush for 700 miles.
That's when you have to stop at a rest area. They are all there to give you a little respite, but some of them are much nicer than others.
Relay For Life at West Valley High School was a huge success on Saturday (June 24). People came out in droves with the spirit of celebrating life and honoring those we have lost to the battle of cancer. It isn't easy losing someone to such a thing.
