The Tahuya Day Celebration and Parade is Saturday July 2. Always held on the first Saturday in July, this annual celebration draws 1,500 to 2,000 people. This year the Tahuya Day Celebration and Parade is dedicated in the memory of Anna Clements, a caring and respected community leader in Tahuya.
The festivities run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. by the fire station on the North Shore Road, the main street of Tahuya. Enjoy a variety of vendor booths featuring crafts, food, jewelry, baskets, community non-profit groups, a scholarship raffle, “Tahuya” clothing, activities for the kids, free train rides, and live music by Stan Yantis and the “Windjammers.”
The parade forms at Kay’s Corner and hits the road at 1 p.m. The Grand Marshal for the parade this year is Renie Ghylin, in recognition of her unending contribution and support for the community. Everyone is welcome to join in the parade. While there is no preregistration; participants are asked to sign in on the day of the parade at Kay’s Corner beginning at 12 Noon.
The scholarship raffle drawing will take place at 3 p.m. Funds from the “Tahuya” clothing and scholarship raffle benefit North Mason High School students and North Mason programs for children and families. Cash or check only.
