Letters | TV's 'Twin Peaks' Festival showcases the Valley
September 24, 2012 · 11:13 AM
Since 1992, the annual Twin Peaks Fest has brought over 200 die-hard Twin Peaks show fans from around the United States and around the world to our beautiful Valley. The Snoqualmie Valley Chamber of Commerce formed an ad-hoc committee to give this annual convention a long overdue warm Valley welcome.
In doing so, it was the hope that that the dedicated Twin Peaks fans, their friends and families would want to shop our local businesses, dine at our wonderful restaurants and music venues, and come back to the beautiful Valley of ‘Twin Peaks’ fame to explore, hike, golf, paddle, ski, shop, stroll and enjoy our towns and hills again and again.
The Snoqualmie Valley Chamber would like to thank the many local businesses, partners and groups who kindly donated food or items to make the ‘Valley Tour Day’ of the 20th annual Twin Peaks Fest the best ever:
Chris Garcia at Frankie’s Pizza, Mayor Ken Hearing and Scott’s Dairy Freeze, Maggi Whitaker at Down To Earth Floral, Bill Weller at QFC, Costco, DeAnna Haverfield of Pioneer Coffee Company, Martin Tozer and Jaime Casady at SnoFalls Brewery, Pat Cokewell, former owner of Mar T Cafe, Cindy Walker at the North Bend Theatre, Wes and Sharon Sorstokke at Snoqualmie Falls Candy Factory, Ed Cook, Factory Stores at North Bend Premium Outlets and Jennifer Osborn. A special shout-out goes to the Mount Si High School cheerleader squad. They were truly great ambassadors for the Valley, greeting T.P. Fest goers, doing ad-hoc ‘Twin Peaks High School’ cheers, and adding a special flair to the event. Thanks goes to Jessii Stevens, MSHS Head Cheerleading coach.
