With the Spokane County Interstate Fair wrapped up, and the last slate of outdoor season events happening mostly this weekend before we head indoors for the cooler months, Valleyfest invites the community out for a proper summer send-off. With activities and attractions to interest all, Valleyfest’s packed three-day schedule includes family bike rides, fun runs, a parade, vendor fair, a car show, live music and entertainment and lots else to see and do. Keep your fingers crossed that weather permits the colorful hot air balloons to take flight at sunrise on Saturday and Sunday morning for Balloons Over Valleyfest. Details and a complete event schedule for this year’s festival can be found online.
Fri, Sept. 23 to Sun, Sept. 25 • Most events are free to attend • At Mirabeau Point Park and CenterPlace Regional Event Center • valleyfest.org • 922-3299
