Heritage Fest celebrates the NW

The Ocean Park-based Heritage Festival over Labor Day Weekend attracts many residents and visitors with exhibits and presentations devoted to Northwest history. This North Bend boy enjoyed a frog wood carving at last year's festival.

On Labor Day Weekend the Ocean Park Heritage Festival is a party - for all of the Peninsula and all of the region - as we don our best old duds and go out to celebrate ... us!

Organizers plan on something for everyone. There will be vendors of all kinds showing off their best wares to see and buy. Much of it is handcrafted. There will be all of our favorite foods to tempt the palate.

The Chamber/ Heritage Tent will house displays from many regional museums. There will be plenty of photos to reminisce over. There will be the Geneological Society as well as the DAR, SAR, and the Friends of Lewis and Clark and much more.

"Children will enjoy playing all kinds of games," says Sandra Brown, adding there will be plenty of prizes.

At the Storytellers Tent one can sit and listen to stories of olden days or childhood tales.

There also will be our demonstrators showing us how they do woodcarving, hardanger, rughooking, and spinning.

This brings us to the Entertainment Tent as there is music for everyone - all of it different, all from the region and all fun.

So mark your calendar and begin counting down the days, Labor Day is coming and the Ocean Park Area Chamber of Commerce is putting on a party.

Bring your history and come celebrate another time with us. We look forward to seeing you there.
