The festival was 3 days long again - from Friday afternoon to Sunday afternoon. Among the features of this year's festival were:
** Most events including vendors, stage shows, the pie eating contest, and parking were held in Klickitat Prairie Park just south of State St. or the Community Center on State St. The parade was on State St. The car show was held on the school grounds while the Tail Race is started on the south side of the Mossyrock Dam. This year the Bicycle ride started at the Klickitat Prairie Park parking lot.
While visiting Mossyrock you may want to buy some blueberries from a local farm and visit the flower fields and show garden at the DeGoede Bulb Farm. Better yet, make your visit part of a longer trip staying at one of the hotels or camp grounds along the beautiful White Pass Scenic By-Way stretching from I-5 south of Chehalis to Naches along US 12.
