$25,000 state grant will help Darrington rodeo

Gov. Jay Inslee today approved $25,000 in state aid to help this year’s Darrington Timberbowl Rodeo, June 21-22, part of the Inslee administration’s efforts to boost tourism to the mudslide-stricken area this year.

Today’s grant is in addition to a $150,000 allocation the governor recently for a publicity and marketing campaign to tout the North Fork of the Stillaguamish Valley, and the communities of Darrington, Oso and Arlington, recovering from the March 22 mudslide that killed 43 people, including two who still are missing.

The grant from the Washington State Department of Commerce will assist the Darrington Horse Owners Association, partners, clubs, businesses and the community with materials and supplies to upgrade the rodeo facility.

The work include updating electrical hookups and repairing fencing around the main arena and rodeo fairgrounds.
