ORIGINAL STORY

Years of construction and remodeling are FINALLY finished in downtown Snoqualmie and it’s kind of a big deal for local business owners, city officials and residents… so why not throw a party?

That’s exactly what some city officials must’ve been thinking.

Main Street Celebration in Downtown Snoqualmie

The City of Snoqualmie recently announced that it will host a special celebration – marking the end of the construction in downtown Snoqualmie. The area has undergone three major improvement projects over the past five years, with the most recent Infrastructure Improvement Project finishing up in late July after over a year of constant construction and street congestion.

Parks and Public Works Director Dan Marcinko stated “This is a significant improvement to one of our key downtown economic engines for the community. We greatly appreciate the downtown businesses and their patience during the construction period, but we feel the result was well worth the wait and the rewards will be beneficial for businesses for years to come.”

 The Main Street Celebration is free to all community members and will be held at Railroad Park and King Street from 1PM – 6PM on Saturday, August 29, 2015.

Bring the whole family! There will be bouncey houses, face painting, a DJ, dual zip lines, 32 foot rock climbing wall – AND a golden opportunity to dunk your favorite city official in a dunk tank.

Yes, you read that right… a chance ti dunk a city official.

Director Marcinko commented, “It will be a fun opportunity for our families and businesses to come out and celebrate a milestone in historic downtown revitalization.”

So come on down and check out the facelift. Downtown Snoqualmie is looking great! For more info and complete schedule of events visit the City of Snoqualmie website.

  2. I’m sorry, but I find it so funny that they think they’ve “revitalized” downtown Snoqualmie. I can’t see ONE thing that they’ve improved. The town has the most ridiculous parking scheme I’ve ever seen. The one thing that made the town cool was the trains, last I drove through most of them are gone. I’d sure love to know what they think they’ve made any better?

    • Right on, Kim Brown! I’m with you. I don’t get the parking scheme at all. It makes me think of the Emperor’s New Clothes. Scoundrels sold someone on the idea of reversing the angle of the parking, and other officials were too insecure & gullible to inject the truth. So we are about to see naked stupidity parade down 202.

Speak Your Mind
