Yakima's Folklife Celebration

The 24th annual "Folklife celebration" took place at Franklin park, and for those of you who do not know about the free event; it is a three day gathering filled with music, drama performances, vendors and yes, of course--food. The M.C. coordinator of the event, Jane Newall said, "the event is such a blast because it offers a variety of choices for the weekend, and as you can see around here--lots of families come out for this. Organizers of the event say they are able to launch the gathering each year because of sponsors, and local donations. Newall says receiving donations is a process of writing letters to companies, and asking friends to support the event. Since the cost of the event is made free because of the donations; it gives friends people who want to attend one less thing to worry about.
