A Community of Hope in a Time of Uncertainty

If we can’t go to the parade. The parade will come to us.

Our community usually spends Labor Day weekend with a parade, BBQ, fair, and livestock show. It’s a time to visit neighbors and families and show off our crafts and critters. This year all was canceled.

However, with the efforts of our local chamber and city we were able to bring some laughter and joy to our neighbors. Instead of a 3 block parade on main street we twisted and turned our way through 9 miles of streets so everyone could wave from a safe distance to each other.

What a blast! Ritzville Communities Rock!
