Saturday’s parade and pancake breakfast were among the popular events at this year’s community festival
Area residents were greeted with sunshine Saturday as they attended the 2023 Hockinson Fun Days.
This year’s event was kicked off Friday evening with Bingo games at Hockinson High School. The majority of the events took place on Saturday (June 3), beginning with the traditional Fire District 3 Pancake Breakfast followed by the Marketplace Bazaar, which was open throughout the day.
Proceeds from the Pancake Breakfast went to support 6-year-old Brantleight Holzman and his family. Brantley lives with congenital heart defects and lung disease. The Men’s Ministry at Brush Prairie Baptist Church and Boy Scout Troop 475 served as volunteers at the Pancake Breakfast.
The Fun Days Parade took place at noon Sunday, with entrants traveling from Hockinson High School to the intersection of NE 182nd Ave. and NE 164th St. Band, floats, vintage cars and other entrants made up this year’s parade participants. The 2023 Grand Marshals were Fire District 3 Chief Steve Wrightson and his wife Tacey.
The Country Fair Carnival was held Saturday at the Hockinson Community Center and the Elim Church was the site of a Cruise In. Live music was provided by the Katie Jane Band.
