Founders Day Festival
AND THAT’S A WRAP!
WHAT A GREAT WEEKEND OF COMMUNITY FUN. RE*IMAGINE MEDICAL LAKE IS SO PROUD TO CALL THIS TOWN HOME, AND WE ARE HUMBLED BY THE OUTPOURING OF SUPPORT FROM OUR SPONSORS, VOLUNTEERS AND WIDE-RANGING PARTICIPANTS.
MANY THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO PARTICIPATED IN SOME WAY: BY PERFORMING ON STAGE, PARTICIPATING IN THE VENDOR FAIR, COOKING UP SCRUMPTIOUS FOOD, SHOOTING OFF FIREWORKS, COMPETING IN A TRIATHLON, MARCHING IN THE PARADE, CLEAN UP, ETC, ETC.
WE COULD NOT HAVE PULLED OFF THIS HISTORIC CELEBRATION WITHOUT YOU!
Medical Lake Founders Day Festival is a tradition dating back to 1926, and became an annual event in the early 1980s when it grew to a five-day event. Re*Imagine Medical Lake took up the mantle in 2016 to help keep the Founders Day fire burning!
Medical Lake has a rich heritage that began with our Native American brothers and sisters who came in peace, setting aside tribal conflicts, to experience the healing waters of Medical Lake. We also remember our founding families, the Hallets and LeFevres, who brought settlers and commerce to the area, including the establishment of varied state institutions, the railroad, and a permanent military presence. We are so proud of our past and are hopeful about our future!
Friday, June 15th, 6:00 – 11:00 pm will feature a Friday Night “Bring the Wall” outdoor barbecue, ice cream, live entertainment and fireworks show to Waterfront Park. This fun-filled evening is also a fundraising event to bring the Vietnam Veterans Traveling Wall to Medical Lake in 2019. More info here.
Saturday, June 16th, 10:00 am – 4:00 pm will feature a Parade, the Trailblazer Triathlon, Pick-n-Roll basketball tournament, and Youth Punt/Pass/Kick competition, Disc Dogs frisbee show, vendor booths, street dance, and a surprise or two along the way. (We regret to say the Booster Club 5-k has been cancelled this year.)
