2017 Prairie Days

Historical Background:
Under construction. Am asking Barrie and JW to write up a few lines. Just using this as a placeholder

Kid's Day is a FREE event hosted by Living Water Church in partnership with Yelm Lions Club for kids ages 4 through 12 years old. Kids attending will engage in safe, fun activities such as bounce houses, face painting and vendor prizes. All families from the community are invited to participate.

This year's Prairie Days Parade hosted by the Yelm Chamber of Commerce will be held on Saturday, June 24, 2017.  Line-up for participating floats is at 8 am, with judging at 9 am. Floats will will then start moving along the parade route at 9:30 am.

Important: The parade will not be held on Thursday afternoon, as you have been used to in previous years!!!!! The theme this year is "Home on the Prairie".

Entertainment is under construction. I'm asking Tess to work on this piece once she has all the info together; I just want a placeholder for it.
