Pasco's Fiery Foods Festival is Back

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash. - Things are getting ready to heat up in Pasco, and we're not talking about the weather. After a 3 year hiatus, Pasco's Fiery Foods Festival is back!

The popular festival hasn't been around the past few years because of a lack of volunteers.
But this year, under the direction of the newly formed Downtown Pasco Development Authority, the festival is back and better than ever.

The basics will be the same; lots of entertainment and fiery foods.  But for the first time, an animal display, extra music stage, extra seating  and even a dunk tank featuring Pasco's mayor will be set up.

Organizers say an event that everyone can enjoy.

"We just want everyone to come and have fun. We really tried to make this an event not strictly for Pasco but for everyone to see that Pasco is a fun place filled with culture and its promising," said Downtown Pasco Development Authority Executive Director Michael Goins.

More than 50 people will be volunteering, including Tri-Cities Fever players and the Atomic Roller Derby girls .

The festival is from noon until 8 p.m. on Saturday, September 14th. It will be set up on 4th Avenue and Lewis Street in downtown Pasco. It's free to get in, but people will have to pay for food and alcohol.
