Who is Performing?

Two live performances on the Cashmere Valley Bank stage, kicking off with Stephanie Anne Johnson, based out of Tacoma, and the frontwoman for The Hidogs! Their mantra is “find your joy and go there” so to North Front Street at 6 pm this Thursday is where we go!

Hitting the stage at 7 pm are the DimeStore Prophets! Located in Moses Lake DimeStore Prophets are a three-piece groove, rock, and reggae band that brings "Feel Good Music" to the Pacific Northwest playing extensively since 2010.

It's going to be a night filled with professional crowd-pleasing music so make sure you bring sunscreen, sunglasses, and your dancing shoes!

The activities and beer garden open up at 5:30 pm

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
