Fall City Day brings the Valley together to celebrate community

This year was the 46th annual Fall City Day.

The sun shone down on Redmond-Fall City Road on an otherwise cloudy day for the 46th annual Fall City Day community fair on Saturday.

This year’s festival saw people from all over the Valley come together to enjoy the food, music and games of the event. The day began with the annual parade which featured Grand Marshals Tom and Irene Pike.

In addition to a number of vendor booths lined up and down the street, several events were held all throughout the day. The YMCA and WATCH D.O.G.S. held family games at the Fall City Elementary field, The Fall City Honkers baseball team hosted the dunk tank event, and the annual watermelon eating contest was held at Quigley Park.

Live music was performed by local band, The Rangers, throughout the day. The annual Duck Derby event capped off the days events. Attendees were able to purchase a rubber duck to enter into the race. At 2:30 p.m., buckets full of rubber ducks were thrown into the Snoqualmie River for a race. The winners, announced later that day, received several prizes.
