A day of family festivities in Kittredge

Civic Association hosts its annual CanyonFest event

Posted

People of all ages stepped into hula hoops and began to circle their hips, hoping to make the ring stay above the ground.

On Sept. 18, Kittredge Civic Association hosted its annual CanyonFest in Kittredge Park with activities for all ages, music, multiple local vendors and food trucks. From the sack races to the tug of war, the duck races to the kids games, the day was full of entertainment for the whole family.

KCA president Jason Stawski was excited about the festival.

“Today we have a lot of activities,” he said, “and roughly 20 vendors are here to showcase their products and services.”

Stawski said the event is the biggest fundraiser for KCA each year, with most of the money used for the association’s other activities throughout the year including and Easter egg hunt for local children.

Jimmy Dickson, a KCA board member, said CanyonFest has been an annual event for decades, noting that his favorite part of the day was “just getting the community together and showing the outside community what Kittredge is all about.”

Aimee Janich and Carolyn Clawson, friends for more than 40 years, thought it was important to enjoy themselves after many cancellations last year. They love fall festivals and of course being able to spend time with friends.

Janich said she was “enjoying the beautiful weather and the music and an ice-cold beer.”

Throughout the festival, friends of all ages could be seen appreciating the time together. From teenagers sitting on hay bales listening to the band play to two young boys sharing a snow cone, the day was truly about enjoying community.
