SEQUIM — The Sequim Irrigation Festival’s Grand Finale Weekend will offer strongmen, a logging show, a grand parade and fireworks.
The festival, now celebrating its second weekend builds on a 121-year-old tradition, with the theme of “Looking to the Future Through the Past.”
Other events this weekend are a golf tournament, fun run and car show.
This year’s Grand Parade is full with 120 entries, organizers said.
It honors Grand Marshal Jim Stoffer, Grand Pioneer Mayme Faulk, Grand Pioneer William Blank, Honorary Pioneer Jo Robb and Honorary Pioneer Milton Lynch.
Just before the parade, festivalgoers can enjoy a lineup of classic cars and motorcycles as they cruise down Washington Street.
By early this week, the cruise had 67 entries “with more coming in hourly,” said Randy Perry, organizer of the Hot Rods & Harleys Show ‘n’ Cruz and Car Show.
The 28th annual Logging Show offers several competitions, including chainsaw carving, axe throwing, pole falling and hand bucking among others.
The Truck and Tractor Pull coincides with the logging show, as well as the annual Strongman Competition where international competitors participate in axle lift, arm over arm truck pull, log press, tire flip, stone stack, dead lift and car lift.
The long weekend began Thursday with a Sequim History Walking Tour, the carnival at Sequim High School’s athletic fields along Fir Street and a performance of the “Cinderella” operetta at the high school auditorium, 533 N. Sequim Ave.
