Yakima Downtown Summer Nights
Report and photos by Clay Graham / Selah Sweets
On Thursday, July 6th we set up the Selah Sweets Shaved Ice vendor trailer up on Historical North Front Street in Yakima for the forth of ten Downtown Summer Nights events in 2017.
It was a very, very hot day. It was even hot as we left, which was after 10 PM. There was still a big turnout of people and vendors.

The free shows, presented by Stewart Subaru and Downtown Association of Yakima, run every Thursday through August from 5:30-9 p.m. on North Front Street between Yakima Avenue and Staff Sgt. Pendleton Way. Chinook Fest powers the music, Legends Casino Hotel sponsors the stage and Virginia Mason Memorial provides a cooling station (not that anybody needed one last night) complete with a misting tent.
Meantime, Regional Health hosts an interactive, safe and fun kids area, and MOD Pizza — with help from Arts on the Move — oversees all of the weekly activities. U.S. Cellular supplies the cellphone charging stations.
