SKYKOMISH BATTERED BY FLOODING RESCHEDULES HOLIDAY MARKET FOR DEC. 12

(SKYKOMISH, WA.) -- Tony Grider, Mayor of the historic railroad town of Skykomish wasn't kidding when he said in a recent email that, "It's been an interesting start to our holiday season."

The community had its annual Holiday Market set for November 21, then came the major flooding on the Skykomish River Nov. 17 and 18, as well as on other rivers in western Washington.

Snohomish County is the 2nd most flood prone county in the state.

"Unfortunately, just days before the market, our community suffered from one of the worst flooding (events) we have ever experienced and a power outage that lasted up through the original date of the market, effectively canceling the event," said Grider who is also a teacher in the community who ended up spending the night with some kids who were stranded in the school overnight in the cold and dark.

That was the other issue: no go juice in the dead of winter. The electricity was off for days on end. Then there was the closure of Stevens Pass just past Skykomish due to flood damage on a small bridge, and local residents dealing with their own flood related issues and there was no way the community market could go on as planned.

The good news is, the annual Skykomish Holiday Market has been rescheduled for Saturday, December 12 from 11am to 3 pm at the same place, in Maloney’s General Store on Railroad Avenue, the main drag through town.

The market is a fun, down home, old fashioned small town holiday event for the whole family. It features an array of local vendors with a variety of handmade arts and crafts as well as one-of-a-kind items perfect for gift giving during the holiday season. It's also a chance to buy local and keep your money circulating in and around the greater Sky Valley Community.

The market also includes live music by the local bluegrass group, “Hidin’ In the Hills,” and the Skykomish school music group.

Room for a few more vendors

This year the market has room for 3 to 4 more vendors since not all of the vendors who were scheduled for Nov. 21 can make the rescheduled date.

Anyone interested in being a vendor at the market (handmade items only) can call Madelle Quiring at 360-677-2135.
