Annual Bald Eagle Days
Date: July 14-15th, 2017
About the Event:
Over 35 years ago after the US Congress passed the Endangered Bald Eagle act, the Cathlamet Women’s Club decided that they would put on a parade through Cathlamet to show support for the Bald Eagle, and to encourage people to protect our famous Bald Eagle.
Over the years that annual event has grown into a three day festival visited by over 3,000 people each year. Even now that the Bald Eagle is no longer endangered we are very proud that our area has many Bald Eagles and you can find them daily in and around our County.
Our small town parade is so “small town”, that everybody wants to participate. All the way from people walking their dogs to Log Trucks. Every year the Festival has a theme and the parade entities follow the theme with floats trucks, tractors, horses, etc. Many trophies and awards are given each year to category winners.
Remember to visit Wahkiakum County’s signature festival in July and you will not only be treated to a fun day but one of the best Fireworks Show in the State of Washington.
