Fresh Hop Ale Festival
Report & photos by Clay Graham / Selah Sweets / Eastern Washington Tourism
On Saturday September 29th, 2018, in Downtown Yakima, we set up the Selah Sweets catering table in the VIP area. We bought 700 of our Yakima Valley Hop Snacks, Hop Lemon Mini-cupcakes to serve in the VIP area.
The VIP area opened at 4 PM. We were busy serving cupcakes and fighting the wind from blowing everything on the table away. The wind did help cool things down since it was hot the fist few hours we were there.
I was not able to get as many photos as I would have liked due to it was close to dark when I was able to leave the catering table. I made it around one lap missing a lot of things. next time I hope to get photos earlier in the day.
The place was packed with many people having a good time. This event has grown since I was last there in 2011. It was a great time.
A special thank you to Hoptown Wood Fired Pizza for helping us out.
