The Ben Parish Band plays at 6:45 p.m. at Tolt-MacDonald Park, performing jazz standards from the 1950s and 1960s. Some of the tunes might sound similar to movie or Broadway soundtracks, like ‘Guys and Dolls’ or ‘Oklahoma.’ A standard is not song with scripted notes and rhythms, but more like a theme or tune that is improvised upon each time the band plays. “Each band has its own flavor of how a standard is played,” explained Parish. He believes one distinctive characteristic of jazz music is its spontaneity. A good musician grooves and adds to his fellow band members’ impromptu bars.

Just Moo it Children and adults can pass, shoot and jam at the Just Moo it 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament, which returns Thursday, July 4, following the grand parade, on Bird Street. Divisions include adult men, co-ed, women 15 years and older; and youth (boys and girls) grades kindergarten through eighth grade. Teams will also have the choice to play competitively or recreationally. Children are bracketed by their grade in the upcoming school year. To sign up, visit

Jeff Zuber will be performing after the parade, at the Parade Stage. Zuber is a singer and song writer who will be playing a combination of familiar tunes and original pieces. Recognizable music might include songs by James Taylor and Jimmy Buffet. Zuber wrote one piece, ‘Blown Up on the Fourth of July,’ specifically for the Carnation celebration. The song is about an older fellow who takes his lawn chair down to main street to watch the parade. When his wife finds out that he has been looking at the pretty girls she lays into him and blows up on the Fourth of July. “It’s a comedy song about a guy who is enjoying the Fourth of July too much,” Zuber said. Zuber has been playing music for more than 30 years and has performed at the Carnation Fourth the last three years. Whenever Zuber performs he tries to engage his audience. “I have lots of good stories to go with the songs,” said Zuber. “I really enjoy the crowd and try to be very interactive.”

Playing at the Fourth, the Jack Ballard band is Ballard himself on lead guitar, blues harp and vocals, Gary Gill on rhythm and slide guitar, Lester Gray on bass, Tim Wong on rhythm, Ed Masters on keyboard and Aaron Dowell on the drums.


Rene Wolf will be singing “God Bless the USA” before the fireworks display at 10 p.m. on the Fourth of July at the Tolt-MacDonald Park. Wolf chose to sing “God Bless the USA” because she

believed the lyrics would be a good reminder of what it means to be free. “It makes me really realize that I am glad to live in America,” said Wolf. “It’s a celebration of our Independence.” As a high school student living in a small town, Wolf realizes that her freedom to learn and grow should not be taken for granted. One of the things Wolf is

most thankful for is the freedom to sing. She sings in the Cedarcrest High School choir and on the worship team for her youth group at Redemption Church. “I don’t play sports,” said Wolf. “So singing is kind of like my sport.” Wolf wants to use her voice to bless and touch other people. She was glad to sing last year and is excited to sing again.

Parish and his fellow band members try to communicate to each other on stage and create a carefree and enjoyable atmosphere for their audience. “We want to create something spontaneous and pleasing to the ear,” said Parish. “A lot of what we do up there isn’t planned.” Jazz, much like the American spirit, is free and distinctively diverse. Jazz was born in the early twentieth century. During a vast migration of African Americans into Northern cities, classical music met blues in the clubs and dance halls of Harlem. “Jazz is a really cool thing that was literally born out of separate cultures merging, which is a lot like America,” said Parish. “So I think it is fitting that we play jazz music on the day we celebrate America’s birth.”

Sound with a variety of bands. Now, in the Jack Ballard Band, Gill and Ballard are groovin’ together once again.

Ballard got his start with Gary Gill playing at the Olympic Hotel in downtown Seattle. He has performed in nightclubs throughout the Puget

At Carnation’s Hot Rods & Harleys Show, it is

All about the wheels By Carol Ladwig Staff Reporter

Flying hooves, sumptuous costumes and festive music have been a part of Carnation’s Fourth of July celebration for years. The Ixtapa dancing horses are an annual tradition that makes this fiesta special. Horses are presented and ridden by the owners, family and friends of the Ixtapa chain of family Mexican restaurants and their affiliates. They continue a 400-year-old tradition of the local community and families working together to organize and hold a rodeo for the local Mexican cowboys, called charros. In these competitions, the charros would compete to display their skills in horsemanship, rope skills and cattle roping. These events were held not so much to declare a winner, but to give the entire community a part in the fiesta. The Mariachi are a traditional folk band. With instruments originally brought to the New World by the Spanish, the Mexican musicians combined them in unique ways. Starting around the nineteenth century, the Mariachi bands incorporated the popular songs of their region into their style. These were typically songs about country life including the plants and animals of the region. Courtship is another popular topic of the music, often using imagery of the rituals of the farm animals to describe the relationships of men and women.

The spirit of tradition

To classic car guys, a sunny day is usually reason enough to roll their prized possessions out of the garage and put them on display. Add the food, fun and crowds of the Great Carnation 4th of July celebration, and who needs a trophy? “If this was just a car show all by itself, I would say ‘yeah, you have to have trophies,’ but we’re in the middle of the Carnation 4th of July celebration,” says Roger Jones, organizer of the annual Hot Rods & Harleys show at Carnation. “I think there’s plenty of reason for people to bring their cars out.” Jones, who also organizes the Big Rock Classic Car Show in Duvall, says the show will see a lot of returning cars—about 85 are expected­— and a few changes this year. “It’s not going to be the trophied event this year,” Jones said, in part because the show has no sponsor, but also because car shows in general are moving away from trophies to “events where you just come out and show off your car… a show and shine is what they call it.” There will still be ribbons and bragging rights for the cool cars and hot bikes, but only for the best of the class. “We’ll probably have five or six categories with ribbons,” Jones

said, “best car, truck, motorcycle, maybe grand and maybe a reserve champion,” he said. The show will return to 4760 Tolt Avenue, the parking lot of the new Gigi’s Cafe and former Bank of America building, too. Last year’s event was at the Carnation Elementary School, which Jones said was also a great venue, but caused concerns about traffic back-ups and pedestrian safety. Also, the Stedman family, owners of Gigi’s, welcomed the show back. “Janice and Randy wanted it there,” Jones said, and the restaurant will be open for business during the show. Anyone can enter the show for the $20 registration fee, either

14 Years of Strawberry Shortcake

Event Schedule Wednesday, July 3

Sno-Valley Senior Center volunteers making tasty treats, helping community

• 5 to 7 p.m., Sno-Valley Senior Center’s benefit Spaghetti Dinner at the center, downtown Carnation

By Kira Clark


Thursday, July 4

SVR Intern

or most people, the Fourth of July is a day off from work. Not for Delores Ulrich. For the last 14 years, 78-year-old Ulrich has organized the Sno-Valley Senior Center’s Fourth of July spaghetti dinner and strawberry shortcake sale fundraiser. Starting at 7 a.m., on the 4th, Ulrich and her fellow volunteers tromp into the Sno-Valley Senior Center kitchen to prepare 500 servings of strawberry shortcake for hungry parade-goers. Made with local strawberries and fresh organic whipped cream, the shortcake has become a Carnation Fourth tradition. The annual fundraiser generally brings in around $4,000 to support the senior center. Much like many other activities and programs at the center, the fundraiser relies on volunteers and donations from local producers. The spaghetti feed is 5 to 7 p.m. on Wednesday July 3, at the senior center. Tickets are $8 for adults and $4 for children. The strawberry shortcake sale starts at 10 a.m., July 4, at the center and goes until 2 p.m., or supplies run out. Each serving is $5.

Local connection For Ulrich, strawberry shortcake production is a family event. Her daughter, Leslie Day, and 10-yearold granddaughter, Sarah Day, will be in the kitchen cutting strawberries and mixing batter with her. Ulrich’s sister, Margaret Denton, volunteered her to help with the fundraiser 14 years ago. “She said, ‘I think we should do this together,’” Ulrich said. “Then she decided to go to Minnesota and I was left doing the shortcake.” Since the Minnesota trip, Denton has been helping every Fourth of July. This year, 90-year-old Denton is staying home. Ulrich has lived in Carnation for 49 years. She recalls when the parade was so short that it circled through town twice. “I’ve known a lot of these people for 30 or 40 years,” Ulrich said looking around the center. Ulrich met Barb Haugen 40 years ago at Thora’s Beauty Parlor in downtown Carnation. Ulrich was giving Haugen a D.A. or ducktail style haircut, popular in the 50s.When Ulrich first started cutting hair 60 years ago, cuts were $1 and perms were $10. “People came and visited,” Ulrich said. “I always had the coffee pot on and a plate of cookies.” In a

small town like Carnation, the beauty parlor became a ladies’ social hub. Haugen and Ulrich became dear friends. Haugen has helped Ulrich with the fundraiser every year. Haugen’s mother, Mary Maos, was a founding member of the Sno-Valley Senior Center in 1975. “She was a little bitty thing,” described Ulrich. When Maos drove down the street in her big Chrysler, all you could see was the tip of her head peeking over the steering wheel. Other founding members were Ethel Gould and Dorcas Smith. Gould got things done by bossing people around. “Oh ya, she liked to tell people what to do,” Ulrich said. The center was founded in 1975 in the refurbished Odd Fellows Hall in the middle of Carnation, one and a half blocks behind city hall. Everyone in town jumped in to do what needed to be done. Today, the center is still run by volunteers. Director Amara Oden is the only full-time paid staff member at the center; everyone else either works part-time or volunteers. More than 300 seniors serve each month at the center, working at the thrift store, making meals, coordinating drama productions, helping with set up or sitting at the front desk. “I love this place so much, I work myself too much,” said Dee Aronica, commenting on the number of hours she volunteers at the center. Sitting around a table with her friends eating chicken salad and blackberry cobbler for lunch, center member Rae Stewart said, “There is absolutely no reason for anyone to just sit at home. If you live between Fall City and Duvall, there are buses which can come get you.” Seniors can ride the Sno-Valley Shuttle anywhere in the Valley for 25 cents. The shuttle will pick seniors up on their front door and assist with loading and unloading. Call (425) 333-5554 or (425) 888-7001.

Digging into history Fourth booth, office space for Tolt Historical Society If you want to look up an ancestor, get a print of a historic photo or just learn about Carnation’s past, the Tolt Historical Society table at the Great Carnation Fourth of July is your avenue to do it. At the society’s Fourth of July booth, you can find Centennial ornaments, which show the town’s rock entry marker, engraved circa 1930, as well as its Centennial Cookbook, which showcases local family recipes that go back generations. According to Society leader Isabel Jones, Carnation’s Fourth of July celebration has very deep roots. A 1941 high school graduate, she recalls log-bucking contests with handsaws in her youth.
