Valleyfest starts tonight

Rob West, 41, of Hillyard, poses in the stocks as his son, Jasper, photographed him with John Brooks, of Cheney, playing a sheriff. The display was provided by the Living History Players at Valleyfest, Sept. 25, 2010 at Mirabeau Point Park.  SR file photo.

If you need something to keep you busy this weekend, the 21st annual Valleyfest starts tonight with a parade down Sprague Avenue at 7:30 p.m. The parade route is reversed this year, so it will start at New Life Assembly of God Church (10920 E. Sprague) and head east to Robie Road. No candy will be thrown during the parade this year because of safety issues, but kids can still get their candy on Sprague between Bowdish and University before from 6:15 to 7 p.m. before the parade begins.

A whole bunch of events are planned in Mirabeau Park and at CenterPlace on Saturday and Sunday. You can click here for a full schedule, but the highlights for Saturday are the pancake breakfast, fishing at the falls, classic car show, live entertainment, free activities for kids and more than 200 booths. Sunday is dominated by Responsible Dog Ownership Day events, but all the booths will still be open and more live entertainment is planned.
