Main Street to be closed for culvert replacement at Thayer Creek

  • Written by Valley View Staff

As the summer construction season begins to heat up, an important element  of  the   City  of  Duvall’s Main Street improvements can finally be constructed. With permit restrictions limiting work to a small period of time during the dry summer months, the culvert replacement at Thayer Creek will require some patience from local drivers. Located at the intersection of SR 203 (Main Street) and NE 143rd Place, the task will require a full closure of SR 203 and detouring of traffic around the work zone for more than a week. Scheduled to begin on Mon, July 17th and re-open no later than 4 p.m. on Wed, July 26th.

  • Written by Valley View Staff

Now that the Greatest Show on Earth is no longer, there is a little circus that could…and will make your circus dreams come true – Venardos Circus! The amazing singing and acting circus out of Los Angeles was a last-minute addition to the Kla Ha Ya Days festivities last year and proved so successful, the circus is coming back to entertain kids of all ages, with shows running Wed, July 12th through Sun, July 16th at Harvey Field next to the Carnival, 9900 Airport Way in Snohomish.

Under a brand new red and white striped tent – the Big Top – Master of Ceremonies Kevin Venardos, will welcome you with song and dance. Then he’ll introduce you to stunning  acts   of   dare  devilry, incredible balancing acts and fascinating juggling while clowns tickle your fancy and funny bone. The 80 minute Broadway show with Cirque quality acts and an intermission will also include the Kla Ha Ya Days theme honoring the county’s heritage farming families: Home Grown Snohomish.

There is a free pre-show event an hour before where you’re welcome to view the Big Top, sit on a hay bale and interact with the performers. How about a selfie? That, too. Tickets for the show can be purchased online at;  adults $25 & children $15.
