The 53rd annual Duvall Days Festival will be held on Saturday, June 1, and Sunday, June 2.
This year’s festival will be held in conjunction with the City of Duvall’s Centennial Celebration and will be bringing back some of the old favorites such as the Frog Jump Contest and the infamous Cow Pie Bingo.
Highway 203 (Main St.) will be closed from 8 a.m. until 1:30 p.m., or as soon as the parade is finished and the road cleaned up.
Saturday’s events will begin with the inaugural Irwin Group half marathon in the morning at 7 a.m. Then the kiddie parade starts at 10:30 a.m., immediately followed by the grande parade with this year’s grand marshals, Ray and Tove Burhen. There will be no parade judging this year.
There will be an announcer, so if you are planning on being in the parade, make sure to complete the parade form, so he knows what you want him to say about you or your organization.
All those who wish to enter either the kiddie or grande parade need to download the application from the website at www.duvalldaysfestival.com, or pick one up at Duvall City Hall. All entries must complete a form and submit it no later than May 15.
There will be an array of vendors located at various locations in the downtown area, primarily in the Riverview School District parking lot on 1st Ave NE. Duvall Fitness will be sponsoring a kids’ fair in the Riverview Plaza parking lot on Main St. There will be a Health & Wellness Fair in the Duvall Chiropractic parking lot on Main St., as well. Various types of entertainment, including music, will be held throughout the day in the Union Bank parking lot as well as other downtown locations.
The 7th annual Big Rock Classic Car and Cycle Show will be held in the Safeway parking lot from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m.
Sunday starts with the 8th annual Duvall 5K/10K runs and kids’ dashes, and continues with the 53rd annual Firemen’s Pancake Breakfast.
All festival vendors must complete an application, available online at www.duvalldaysfestival.com, or at Duvall City Hall. Applications and payments must be returned no later than May 15.
