Scenes from Sumas Days festival on June 30, 2012 in Sumas. The Community Days event featured a parade, a car show, and several other games and events for community members.


Sumas Days, marking the border city's 1891 incorporation, include a parade, festival and car show from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, June 28, in downtown Sumas.

The annual festivities started for the city's 1991 centennial, said Rod Fadden, a member of the local Chamber of Commerce that sponsors the event.

The 11 a.m. parade starts at Sumas Avenue and Harrison Street, turning south on Cherry Street (Highway 9) to Columbia Street, where the festival will be under way at Sumas City Park, featuring food, game and craft vendors and a car show on Third Street near the park.

There's also an open house at the U.S. Border Patrol station on Garrison Road west of the city, Fadden said.

It's capped off with a 10:30 p.m. fireworks show at the rodeo grounds on Cherry Street between Second and Third streets.
