Report and photos by Clay Graham / Selah Sweets – Eastern Washington Tourism

On Thursday, July 5th we set up the Selah Sweets Shaved Ice & Fudge vendor trailer up on Historical North Front Street in Yakima for the forth of ten Downtown Summer Nights events in 2018.

It was a hot fun evening.

The featured bands were Kara Hesse and SuperMother.

More about the event from the official page:

EVERY THURSDAY | JUNE 14TH – AUGUST 16TH 5:30 – 9:00 PM | FREE & ALL AGES

Since its successful debut in 2013, Yakima’s Downtown Summer Nights concert series has become an integral part of Yakima’s summer music scene. Each Thursday, come dance and enjoy a cup of your favorite craft beverage in the heart of downtown on Historic North Front Street. The event is FREE and open to all ages. This year’s 10-show series will run from June 14th through August 16th.

Each week features two bands and a bustling YCH Hops Beer Garden pouring your Yakima Valley craft favorites and outfitted with Memorial Foundation misting tents for those especially hot evenings. For the whole family, an activities area presented by Sage Fruit, food from Front Street restaurateurs and plenty of room to kick up your heels right in front of the main stage.

2018 Bands will include the return of fan favorites such as Blake Noble Band, Too Slim & the Taildraggers and The Olson Bros Band. Expect a raucous good time with new faces like The Pazific and Pitch Perfect 3 bluegrass phenoms, Whiskey Shivers. Check out the full season’s line-up here.

This event was eligible for a voucher toward a complimentary Discover Pass.

On Friday June 29th, 2018, volunteers headed from Selah to north of Kittitas, Washington to set up camp for the Eastern Washington Adventures Naneum Ridge State Forest Work Party.

We found a flat place to set up camp on Dawson Cutoff Road. Other volunteers showed that evening.

On Saturday morning, we meet the DNR staff at The Orchard on Coleman Creek Road. Other volunteers also came to help. At 10 AM we headed across the Naneum Ridge State Forest fixing Green Dot Markers and picking up trash. We meet back up at The Orchard with the DNR in the afternoon to load the smaller trash into their truck to haul away. The big items we piled up and gave the location to the DNR staff to pick up later.

Once camp was set up, we decided to take a sightseeing drive. We headed to the Naneum Basin, then up to Wenatchee Mountain, over snow drifts on Naneum ridge Road, and then back to camp. The trip was fun even with cold high winds, but views were not good due to the clouds very low.

On Sunday we headed across the Colockum Wildlife Area to West Bar on the Columbia River. Across the river you could see Crescent Bar. After awhile enjoying the beach, we headed back to camp taking a different route.

This was a very fun weekend thanks to all that came to volunteer. Thank you to all the volunteers, Eastern Washington Adventures Members, Kittitas County Field & Stream members, and the Department of Natural Resources.
