Newport Chamber, Rodeo Association going old school this weekend | Events
In the past, Paradise Amusements’ carnival rides have been one of the Rodeo attractions but this year they will not be in attendance.
The good news is that Spokane’s Hoopfest 3-on-3 basketball tournament, which attracts over 200,000 people, will not conflict with this year’s Rodeo and require local residents to choose between the two fun events.” Shumski continued.
The Chamber and the Rodeo Association are inviting all local non-profit groups who are interested in being a part of making this year’s Rodeo the biggest one ever to join in the fun and sign up to run a game or activity booth.
“If it’s fun and family-oriented, we want to see it at this year’s Old Time Carnival. Whether it’s a face-painting booth, ring toss, photo booth, balloon darts or the like, we want to provide a fun and well organized opportunity for our local non-profits to fundraise alongside each other for their various activities and programs.” said Chamber Executive Director Valorie Hein. “For instance, the Chamber will be sponsoring a dunk tank and we are looking for input on who our community would most like to dunk.” Hein continued. “We’ve already received some helpful suggestions on that front …”
The Old Time Carnival will run from 5-8pm on Friday, June 22nd and 1-8pm on Saturday, June 23rd. Information on vendor booths and parade application forms can be found here. For more information, please contact Valorie Hein, Executive Director at 509-447-5812 or firstname.lastname@example.org
