The Lummi Island Grange welcomes all island organizations, businesses, families and individuals to participate — for free — in its annual Parade and Fall Festival, on Saturday Sept. 13.
The festival will begin about 11 a.m. with a parade starting in the Jenkins field across the street from the school, followed by events happening at the Grange hall until 2 p.m.
This will be the third year of the resurrected island parade.
The Lummi Island Fire Department, led by Chief Duncan McLane, will head the parade with fire engines and rescue vehicles, followed by islanders on floats, in old cars, on horseback, pulling wagons full of children, walking dogs and more. There is no need to register; just show up at the Jenkins field at 10:30 a.m. and you are part of the parade.
Friends of the Island Library will serve beer and food at the festival.
All organizations and islanders and their friends can participate in the parade and festival. Each participant or organization must supply their own tables, tents, chairs and clean up after themselves. There is no charge to set up a booth.
Entertainers and musicians who’d like to participate, or for other information, call Pat Moye at 360-510-7392.
