Hadlock Days to provide fun family outing

PORT HADLOCK — Residents and visitors will take to the streets Saturday for the annual Hadlock Days celebration featuring a parade, dance, games and rides.

All events, except the duck egg race, are free. They will take place at Kivley Center, on the bluff overlooking the waterfront.

Food and craft vendors will set up at 10 a.m.

Craft booths will remain up through Sunday.

Gardening and craft items and lavender products will be on sale.

Family games, a traditional staple of the town celebration, start at 2 p.m. Saturday.

For the strong of arm, there is the Jefferson County Watermelon Toss Championship, reminiscent of the keg toss of past celebrations.

Other traditional contests include egg and water balloon tosses, three-legged races and a family tug-of-war.
