Come be part of a community art project to paint wooden herons. Anyone at Fall City Days is welcome to splash some color on these 16-inch carved birds.

There aren’t any instructions other than having fun. Painters will have 30 barrels of bright colors to choose from and their imaginations to direct them. In September the birds will appear at the Snoqualmie River Fish Festival.

Last year during the same event, over 40 fish were painted. The Fall City Arts organization promises that heron painting this year will be an equally entertaining and educational event. These herons will be used throughout the year to help raise awareness of Fall City Arts and the need to protect the area’s natural resources.
