A street full of fun at Snohomish Kla Ha Ya Days

[Continued from Saturday’s post]

The soapbox derby at the Kla Ha Ya Days festival is a perennial favorite for kids and also for the dads and grandpas who have worked on the homemade cars. For James D. Daniel (above), 9, it was the third year participating. He was pretty busy eating popcorn when this sketcher approached him. “It’s fun to race,” he said. He took 4th place last year and his dad said he was hoping to take first this time.

Two blocks down First Avenue a different type of car was also drawing attention. This 1971 Mach1 Ford Mustang was being raffled by the Valley General Hospital Foundation. Lin McIlrath, director of the foundation, said they’ve been doing the raffle for 17 years as she showed me the pictures of other cool cars from previous editions.

And a summer festival wouldn’t be the same without its lemonade stand.
