Neah Bay: Final day for 78th annual Makah Days today

Color, pageantry and tradition again marked Makah Days on Saturday, and more can be expected on the final day today.

The 78th annual Makah Days transforms Neah Bay into a celebration of culture as the tribe salutes its youth while honoring its elders.

For Peninsula residents and visitors wanting to experience Makah Days, it begins today at 8 a.m. and ends late this afternoon.

Here’s today’s schedule:

8 a.m.: Street fair resumes

10 a.m.: Men’s, women’s and buckskins’ canoe races

Noon: Softball tournament finals

1 p.m.: Fun runs, races, games for all ages

* Slahal tournament, Front Beach. (Slahal is a traditional team competition played with unmarked and marked bones. Team players take turns in guessing the other team’s unmarked bones while drumming and singing tries to distract them.)

* Traditional salmon bake dinner
