Small Town, live on video: North Bend highlighted in Web production
June 12, 2012 · 3:17 PM
King County is doing its part to promote the assets of North Bend, through a new “Small Town King County” video about the city, available on the county’s website, as well as the city’s new site.
The five-minute video features views of Mount Si and other outdoor recreation opportunities, some of the city’s many historic buildings and businesses, a look at the modern factory outlet stores, and interviews with longtime residents Gardiner Vinnedge, Fritz Ribary, and Mayor Ken Hearing. It also highlights the city’s many festivals, and its history as a travelers’ town and a farming community.
North Bend is one of four Valley cities highlighted through the county video series, along with Snoqualmie, Fall City and Duvall. The response to the video, since its release in mid-May, has been very favorable, say city staff members.
“Small Town King County: North Bend” is playing daily on North Bend TV, channel 21, at 8 a.m., 11:30 a.m., 6 p.m., and 9:30 p.m. It is also available on the city’s NBTV Web page, northbendwa.gov/index.aspx?NID=102, and on the county’s website, www.kingcounty.gov/exec/rural/visit.aspx.
