The West End will be bustling this weekend.
The Feast of Forks, the annual Forks Fly-in airplane event, hydroplane boat races in Beaver, a softball tournament and a private showing of an antique collection will be bunched into Saturday and Sunday — with a head start on Friday night.
Promoters of the third annual Feast of Forks promise to offer something for everyone’s palate and musical preference.
More than 30 food vendors will line Spartan Avenue Friday beginning at 6 p.m., then Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 6 p.m.
A trolley will take visitors from downtown to the Forks 11th annual Fly-in and Salmon Bake at Forks Municipal Airport.
The Saturday-only free event begins at 10 a.m. and ends at 6 p.m.
Fly-in organizers expect about 60 vintage aircraft arriving at the airport late Friday evening or early Saturday morning.
Down the highway, the Forks Timber Museum will host the Cabin Fever Rummage Sale next to the museum from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The sale will feature an eclectic array of goods with all proceeds supporting museum maintenance.
And just outside the city limit, Forks resident Ted Spoelstra will display his private farm equipment antique collection that could rival most museums’.
Spoelstra will open his antique storage facility on Klahn Road near U.S. Highway 101 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday.
For those wanting a faster pace, drive out to Beaver’s Lake Pleasant to watch about 50 outboard hydroplane racers take to the water.
Races will be held Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The turnoff is located just off U.S. Highway 101 near Lake Pleasant Grocery.
After a day chock full of activities, wind down by watching a summer softball game at Tillicum Park in Forks.
The 11th annual Fred Orr Memorial Co-ed Softball Tournament will be held Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Play resumes Sunday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
