With so many mountainous snowbanks dotting the landscape of downtown Kent right now it seems hard to picture crowds of sandal and shorts clad festival-goers wandering through arts, crafts and food booths in sunny skies and 75 degrees — but somehow even reading sunshine references feels good so let’s talk Kent Heritage Festival and bask in a little warm weather nostalgia.
The Kent Chamber of Commerce is already busy planning the 20th Anniversary of the Kent Heritage Festival for 2015. The Chamber works with a relatively small but remarkably dedicated group of volunteers to plan, prepare, panic, run and pull off this little community gathering that includes 15,000 to 20,000 of our closest friends and family.
Mark your calendars for Saturday, July 4th from 9 am to 11 pm. Blue skies and a warm breeze is guaranteed.
I can’t wait.
