First Fed marks centennial with big celebration

PORT ANGELES — First Fed will celebrate its centennial on Sunday with live music, a variety of family activities, a beer garden and food vendors.

The celebration will be on Oak and Front streets from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. It marks 100 years of the local community bank, which has operated since 1923.

Because of the festivities, North Oak Street will be closed to West Railroad from 6 a.m. to midnight Sunday.

Complimentary parking will be offered at Peninsula College, 1502 E. Lauridsen Blvd.; the Clallam County Courthouse, 223 E. Fourth St.; and the Vern Burton Community Center, 308 E. Fourth St. A dedicated parking shuttle will provide transportation to the festivities and the parking lots between 10:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m.

The outdoor main stage will host a lineup of musical acts. Abby Mae and the Homeschool Boys will perform at noon, followed by Lady A at 2:30 p.m., Snotty Nose Rez Kids at 4:30 p.m., and headlining the evening, The Daddies (formerly known as the Cherry Poppin’ Daddies) at 7:15 p.m.

The Love Local Showcase will provide a platform for community members on the indoor stage of the Field Arts & Events Hall at 201 W. Front St.

Nonprofits will offer a range of free activities such as bounce houses, inflatable soccer, face painting and bird feeder design.

Food and drink from local businesses will be available for purchase from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Guests looking to enjoy alcoholic beverages from the beer garden will need to present a valid ID and be 21 or older. The proceeds from the Beer Garden will be directed towards supporting the Olympic Medical Center Foundation and the Hurricane Ridge Winter Sports Education Foundation.

Some of the festivities will take up space in a parking lot used by riders on the MV Coho, so First Fed arranged with the Peninsula Daily News to provide overflow ferry parking in the lot at the PDN warehouse at 304 W. Front St.
