In less than two weeks, Vader will be holding their yearly May Day celebration, kicking off the region's annual summer festival season.
Scheduled for May 2 in Downtown Vader, this year's theme is "Trains, Tractors and May Flowers," with activities and parade entries to center around these topics. Confirmed activities include breakfast at the Little Falls Masonic Lodge, performances from the Noe No Ka Mauna hula group and Mexico Within the Heart dance group, as well as the annual Cake Walk, a bike giveaway and games by Little Crane Café. The Vader Assembly of God Church will also be holding a flea market sale, while the fire department will be holding an open house.
Opportunities remain to enter in the parade, with entry forms available at J & G Grocery and Cedar Village IGA, while those with questions may call Janet Charlton at (360) 295-3011. Vendor spaces are also open, and interested parties are encouraged to call Judy Costello at (360) 295-3036.
