The Wahkiakum County Eagle - Established as The Skamokawa Eagle in 1891

Bald Eagle Days came on strong

The court of the 2022 Bald Eagle Days parade took this year's slogan "bald is beautiful" in a unique direction.

Bald Eagle Days 2022 is in the books, and by all accounts it was a big hit with locals and visitors to Cathlamet. The streets were lined with people, and SR 4 was lined with parked cars. The Elochoman Slough Marina was full of yachts and campers. People argued naturally about whether or not it was the longest parade ever. Children bounced from one inflatable to another in the Kid Zone, climbing, sliding, and laughing all along the way. There was food aplenty, and happy smiles everywhere, as old friends greeted each other and shared stories. A music festival and brews brought a throng of people to River Mile 38 Brewery two days in a row. The Duck Inn brought food to the marina and their bands had dancers on their feet. On Main Street, vendors, food, and music kept shoppers busy, and Art in the Park offered mini art classes to the kids while the museum kept young and old happy with root beer floats and train rides. The day ended with the loud applause of a fireworks show, for a day well done. Thanks to the Wahkiakum Chamber of Commerce organizers Monica Budd and Melissa Collins and to all the volunteers who made the big day possible.
