Organizers offer Clark County an event with a ‘positive vibe’
Organizers wanted something positive in their community this summer.
The pandemic did not need to stop them.
The Hockinson Berry Fest, held in downtown Hockinson on Saturday, had that positive vibe.
Blueberry milkshakes courtesy of Hockinson Market were a big hit.
Morguess Family Organic Blueberries sold out of the jam and muffins and most of the syrups within the first two hours. The blueberry lemonade stand also was almost out of lemonade with a few hours left in the festival.
A good problem to have, of course. Organizers did not know how many people would show. Next year, vendors likely will be more prepared.
There was music, a flower shop, and booths set up from a few farms from the region.
Organizers also handed out a map, listing the locations of four farms, asking folks to visit: Majestic Farms Blueberries, Prairie Berry Farm, Grandma Dixie’s, and Barn Dog Flower Farm.
Guests were asked to wear masks and maintain social distancing.
