UPDATE | April 25, 2014
The spring recycling event below has been canceled. The event was sponsored by the City of North Bend. Due to the April 25th explosion in North Bend and the building damage that will require staff and equipment, the event will have to be rescheduled.
It’s a busy weekend around the Snoqualmie Valley. If you’re looking for some Saturday fun, or maybe just doing some spring cleaning, these events have you covered.
