Moxee Hopfest Stepping Up Road Safety

Posted: Updated:

Moxee, WA - Moxeee is known for their hops, in fact they grow more hops per capita there than anywhere else on the planet.  Friday and Saturday you can go out to Moxee city park and celebrate their famous crop with them.  Friday festivities start at 5 p-m. There will be bands playing all night, with vendors selling food and drinks...and games for the kids.

Saturday is much of the same, but festivities will kick off at 7 am.  If you are out there and have a few drinks, you are going to want to think twice before you take off on SR 24 and drive home.  State troopers ... Yakima Sheriff's deputies ... Yakima police and and Wapato police will all be out helping Moxee police look for drunk drivers.
