Valleyfest celebrates 30 years of fun, entertainment, community spirit – The Spokesman

Thirty years of fun.

Thirty years of entertainment.

Thirty years of community spirit.

Yes, 2019 marks 30 years of Valleyfest.

What began as an afternoon of events in Terrace View Park has since expanded to three days and three locations.

Each year, more than 200 volunteers work to make certain that Valleyfest goes off without a hitch, and this year is no different. This year’s Valleyfest, Friday through Sunday, features a diverse range of activities and entertainment for all ages.

Kicking things off Friday at 6:15 p.m. is the Lions Club Bed Races on Sprague Avenue between University and Pines roads.

The ninth-annual fundraiser features costumed groups of five – four runners and one rider – racing to see who can push their bed across the finish line first.

The entry fee for a team of five is $150 and includes a 2019 Bed Race shirt, beverage and goodie bag for each participant.

Prizes for best bed design, team spirit and overall winner will be handed out.

After the bed races, another Valleyfest staple, the Hearts of Gold Parade, will take over Sprague Avenue between North Gillis and Perrine roads.

Expect to see a variety of entrants, including animals, classic cars, parade floats, bands, clowns and Miss Spokane Valley royalty.

On Saturday, plan to bounce between CenterPlace Regional Event Center and Mirabeau Point Park in order to catch all the activities.

The day begins bright and early at CenterPlace with a pancake breakfast before the Step Up for Down Syndrome Walk. Registration opens at 8 a.m., followed by an opening ceremony at 9 and the race at 9:30 a.m.

The rest of the day features Fishing at the Falls (10 a.m.-3:30 p.m.), a car show hosted by LOWCOS Car Club Spokane (11 a.m.-3:30 p.m.); Mobius Science Center’s 15-minute planetarium show every half hour from noon-4:30 p.m.;
