Arlington Festivals


Arlington summer festivals provide fun, raise funds Food, fun, games, competition, duck races, fireworks, airplanes, art and music, and memory making—Arlington Festival is comprised of three ­major events: the Fourth of July, Arlington Fly-In, and Arlington Street Fair.

through the years, but many elements were established as far back as the 1880s, when there were enough early settlers to compete in fun games, dance to the music, and race down the river. While things have changed, one thing’s for Independence Day Arlington’s Fourth of sure: the Arlington FestiJuly Independence Day val involves many groups celebration has evolved and residents collaborat-

ing to present fun events for the whole community to enjoy together. Independence Day begins with Pancakes in the Park. Starting at 7 a.m., breakfast is served by members and friends of Arlington Heights Fire District 21. Your choice of a stack with eggs and bacon, or a stack topped with strawberries and whipped cream, $5 per

plate, until 10 a.m. (or until the pancake batter runs out!) at 1100 West Ave. The Pedal, Paddle, Puff Triathlon is sponsored by the ArlingtonSmokey Point Chamber of Commerce and offers a real challenge to bikers, runners, and water enthusiasts. The triathlon consists of a 5.8 bicyle race, a 6-mile canoe or kayak trip down the Stilly, then a 2-mile relay at River Meadows Park. Registration starts 8 a.m. and the race starts at 10 a.m. As the competitors in the Pedal Paddle Puff Triathlon pass through the park on the final leg of the race, competitors of a different sort are competing for a good deal at the Kiwanis Auction. The Arlington Ki-

wanis Club Auction raises funds for its scholarship program at this event each year, with seniors graduating from Arlington and Lakewood schools reaping the benefits. Two silent auctions will close at 8:30 a.m. and 10 a.m., and the live auction begins at noon. The Rotary Club of Arlington also taps the Fourth of July market for its annual fundraiser in the Great Stilly Duck Dash. With a lot of goodnatured quacking, funds raised benefit youth and seniors in the community. The Rotarians gather in the park in the morning to rally enthusiasm and sell ducks, but the race isn’t until after the Grand Parade, at 7:30 p.m. Games and food ven-

dors are ongoing at Legion Park, to keep families busy in town until the Grand Parade starts. Kids 12 and under are invited to lead the Grand Parade with the traditional Kiddies Parade. Registration begins at 3:30 at PUD, 210 Division St., with line-up and judging at Frontier Bank. For information call Jennifer at 360-618-7848 or go to the city’s website, www., for an application form. The Grand Parade starts at 5 p.m. It’s truly grand, with marching bands, bagpipes, antique cars, military vehicles, tractors, trucks, floats, and more.

Parade Grand Marshal doesn’t let disease slow him down By Sarah Arney

The marshal of Arlington’s Fourth of July Grand Parade is Kody Cunningham, who turned 11 on March 30. Kody attends President’s Elementary School. Kody was named Police Chief for a Day recently, and parade organizers decided he should also be the grand marshal. “Kody and I will be leading the parade in a police vehicle, as is custom-

ary for the police chief, then we’ll be circling back to jump on the parade marshal vehicle,” Police Chief Nelson Beazley said. Kody was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis (CF) when he was five weeks old. CF is a lung and digestive disease. He takes inhaled and oral medications throughout the day to keep his lungs healthy and maintain his weight. Kody is very active with sports (soccer, baseball, basketball) and doing “nor-

mal kid things” like riding his bike, hanging out with friends and playing video games, said mom Lynnea Shephard. “He slows down long enough to do his treatments and take his pills, but the disease does not keep him from being active. We are so fortunate that medications have helped keep Kody healthy and active,” she said. Shephard said her son is like any typical kid. “He complains some-

times about all his treatments and the pills he has to take, but he does an outstanding job keeping up with them because he knows the importance. Treatments are usually a team effort but he knows exactly what needs to be done and when. He’ll do them on his own, with ­timers to remind him to pause the video game or jump off his bike to do what is necessary.” Shephard said that her friend, Caryn Brown, nominated Kody for Chief of the Day and he was lucky enough to be chosen. “People are attracted to Kody,” she said. Chief Beazley agreed. “Kody is a fine young man who has endured more challenges than a child his age should have to face,” Beazley said. “His positive attitude is an inspiration and I am so proud to have him as my first Chief for a

Day.” The average life expectancy of a CF patient is 37 and 1/2 years old, but all of Kody’s goals are long term, Shephard said. Kody lives with his mother in Arlington. His

dad, Brandon Cunningham, lives in Stanwood. He has a stepbrother, Justin Shepard, and a stepsister, Amanda Shepard. Give him a shout when you see him drive by in the parade.

Arlington service clubs plan fun activities to benefit locals Kiwanis Auction

The Kiwanis Club of Arlington scholarship fundraiser auction, held the 4th of July at Haller Park, benefits Arlington and Lakewood High School graduating seniors. The morning event features two silent auctions, the first of which opens at 8:30 a.m. and closes at 9:30 a.m., with the second opening at 10 a.m. and closing at 11. A live auction follows at noon. Auction items often include a flag that has been

flown on the U.S. Capitol, donated by Rep. Rick Larsen, Arlington’s home boy, and also septic pumpings, loads of wood, estate plans, beer brewed by the community development director, and massages, too, among many other fun items. The auction is a fun chance to see supporters sneak in a subtle bid on the item of their choice, hoping not to gain the attention of their bidding rivals. The silent auctions provide an exciting activity between the pancake

breakfast and the different legs of Pedal, Paddle, Puff Triathlon. It’s truly fun in the park on the Fourth of July—a chance to bid on some great items while supporting our local scholars.

Rotary Duck Dash

With all the painted ducks around town reminding the community to enter for a chance to win the Arlington Rotary Club’s Great Stilly Duck Dash, the 22-year-old fundraiser for Rotary causes, which benefit youth and seniors

as well as the community in general, should do well this year. Last year’s Duck Dash was cancelled due to unsafe river conditions, but a random drawing was held to determine winners. Organizers are hopeful that the river spectacle can take place as planned this year. The Arlington Rotary Club’s major fundraiser adds a special air of festivity to the full day of Independence Day events, and the weeks before. Sporting bright orange T-shirts and maybe even a duck costume or two, Rotarians roam through town persuading people to buy chances to win the $5,000 cash first place prize. Other finishers get shopping certificates. At 7:30 p.m., the bright yellow rubber ducks, with numbers affixed to their bottoms, are dumped into

the river on their short journey to the finish line at Haller Park. Since the Haller railroad bridge opened to the public as part of the Centennial Trail, spectators can enjoy a great view up the South Fork of the river, where the ducks will swim from the Lincoln Bridge upstream.

To get your ducks, watch for Rotarians around town—they’re hard to miss. Check out the Web site at greatstillyduckdash. com for photos and info.

A little competition to get the heart pumping By Sarah Arney

A modern interpretation of an ancient tradition in Arlington, the Pedal, Paddle, Puff Triathlon adds biking and running to the tradition of river boat races during its Independence Day celebration. The Pedal, Paddle, Puff Triathlon is sponsored by the ArlingtonSmokey Point Chamber of Commerce and the manpower is provided by city employees and community members who care: Bikers, runners, water enthusiasts, and their relatives and friends. In recent years, the race has been coordinated by airport manager Rob Putnam, a cyclist at heart. He has been assisted by another biker,

Scouts and other helpers wait at the river bank at Haller Park to help triathletes out of their boats, so they can deliver the baton to the runners.

“I am hoping to find a trainee/assistant this year who might take over management next year,” he said. Registration starts 8 a.m., a short meeting for all participants starts at 9 a.m., and the race starts at 10 a.m. Pedal, Paddle, Puff is sponsored by the Arlington-Smokey Point Chamber of Commerce, Putnam said. “They provide the insurance coverage, the Tshirts and cash awards.”

Hometown parade caps off downtown 4th of July activities Arlington loves a parade, and the Fourth of July Grand Parade is always an anticipated hometown experience. It’s fun to see people walking down the center of the street, interacting with fellow Arlingtonians and visitors. The real thrill, though, is riding in the parade. Anyone can do it, just sign up and show up. It’s mostly free, unless you are running for office.

n It’s fun and easy (and free) to be part of the 4th of July Grand Parade. Of course, watching and waving from the sidelines is also a great way to spend the holiday afternoon.

Politicians pay $100 to march in the parade, and commercial units pay $25 for up to three vehicles. Nonprofit organizations enter for free, but

they still must register. Cascade Valley Hospital has been coordinating the parade for the past ten years as a service to the community.

An Open Letter From the


Why I want to quit smoking: Because I want to live a long and healthy life! The main reason I want to quit smoking is because of my health. In reading the literature on what smoking does to your health, I find that I have most of them. Even at my age I would like to help prevent these health issues. Even if it just helps to save a few years of my life, it will be worth it. I have my first grandchild who is a 9 year old. I would like to see him as he grows up to be a young man. I don’t know why it took so long to figure out that the positives are so much better and rewarding than smoking is. Also the cost savings would help me a lot. Being that I am on disability and on a fixed income, I could do more things with the extra money. I would also like to Pay it Forward to make up for all the years I wasted on smoking. I can help and inform other smokers about the hazards of smoking and the benefits of quitting – Pay it Forward! I could be a witness, so to speak, for quitting smoking. So the people around me and the people who know me can see that you can quit. That it isn’t impossible if you are informed and have the desire to quit. Results like food tasting better are things I look forward to. Having more energy and breathing better – who wouldn’t want those things? I also take a lot of medications for things that smoking has contributed to. That is something also to look forward to. My girlfriend (who doesn’t smoke) says when we kiss she doesn’t like the smell of tobacco on my breath. She doesn’t say anything about my hair or clothes, but I’m sure that bothers her, too. – Mike, Everett

Mike is another successful client of Tulalip Health Clinic’s Stop Smoking Program. If you are ready to make a change and take back control of your life once and for all, you can quit smoking. Call Nadine today for the tools to help you succeed!

Art for kids at the Arlington Street Fair By Sarah Arney

Art experiences for all ages of kids—that’s one of several goals in the Arlington Arts Council’s mission. To that end, the AAC has offered art for kids at the Arlington Street Fair for several years. Kids painted a mural in a day two years ago and last year they painted rocks. Early on kids painted the Three Beauties mural with Arlington artist Harry Engstrom. This year, AAC’s youth art committee, Youth Engaged in Art (YEA!), is planning a bigger and better spread of hands-on art projects on the City Hall Plaza, 238 N. Olympic Ave., on Friday and Saturday dur-

ing the Street Fair, July 13 and 14. Projects include puppet making, abstract expressionism Pollack style, and chalk art on the sidewalk, among others.

The arts council is inspired by reactions from kids like the young lady who grabbed a paintbrush to paint the mural and said, “I didn’t know I was going to get to paint

art today!” Mike Nordine, AAC’s muffler sculptor, is planning something special with his granddaughter, Taylor Howes, that will n Kids’ activities are also planned during the day for the 4th of July at Legion Park. Photo by Sarah Arney be fun for all kids.
