Grand Marshals Pegge Baher (left) and Lois Wilson (right) wave to the crowd during May Day last Saturday in Vader. The city was abuzz with local residents coming to take part in the first of Lewis County's summer festivals, with many noting more excitement felt this year than in the past.
A number of residents, both kids and adults, were eager to line up for a ride down a zip line offered by local event specialists Black Tie Extreme. Mike Parsons, who co-owns the business with wife Victoria Parsons, said they had moved to Vader at the beginning of the year and have really come to love the small town.

Kids visiting Cowlitz-Lewis Fire District 20 headquarters got to see a Sesame Street puppet show teaching them that during a fire, they need to "Get out and stay out," to keep themselves safe.
