Ninety artists and performers were represented in downtown Snoqualmie’s biggest Art Walk to date, held Friday, June 28.
“The Art Walk is in great beginning stages and as more people attend it will only get better,” said Snoqualmie Arts Commission Member Lanice Gillard, one of the organizers of the event.

Looking ahead, Gillard expects more participation from artists, musicians and the Snoqualmie Valley Historical Society. Some merchants have seen improved business during the events, and the city has been a huge supporter, says Gillard. The next Finally Friday Art Walk is 5 to 9 p.m. July 26.
