Easton Memorial Day Parade, Festival & Car Show

Easton Memorial Day Saturday, May 28th, 2011, is the 20th annual Easton Memorial Day Celebration. While I do not have the details of this year’s event, I assume it will follow the general time line that is has in the past.  The day includes the Easton Memorial Day Parade.  The parade starts at noon and and run along Railroad Street.  Around the parade, there are generally events all day.  In the past they have had a pancake breakfast at the Easton School Cafeteria from 8 am to 11 am.  Street vendors start selling food, crafts, and even host carnival type games starting around 10 am and lasting until around 6 pm.  And the Cabin Creek Cruisers Car Club will have their 8th annual car show starting around 9 am and going to about 3:30 pm.

Again, I do not have the details of this year’s event, but that is how it has gone in the past.  Stop by Easton this Saturday of Memorial Day Weekend there will be plenty of fun to catch even if my timeline is a little off.

Easton is located off Exit 71 of I-90, about 9 miles west of the Roslyn exit (Exit 80) and 13 miles west of Cle Elum (Exit 84).

Roslyn Riders Poker Night Cancelled


Sounds like something out of the Old West, but no it is 2011 and the Roslyn Riders were forced to cancel the poker tournament due to Equine Herpes Virus. Roslyn Riders pass on their apologies for cancelling the event.

Equine herpesvirus is a group of viruses of the family Herpesviridae that affect horses.  According to Wikipedia Herpesviridae can affect all kinds of animals including humans, but there are several Equine herpesvirus that affect horses.
