There was a lot of speculation that Naches Sportsman's day wouldn't be able to go on. They had lost one of the main people who put the event on over the years and with covid looming overhead, they were sure they might not be able to put the event on.

Thankfully Shane and his team the Naches Lions Club came together and brought along the community to make sure this yearly event could happen after canceling in 2020. Not only was it a huge success but a very memorable event with music, food, games, and more.

I was lucky enough to be asked to host the event for Friday and Saturday, not knowing anything about it I accepted, excited to learn more about the town of Naches. What I saw was a community striving to support one another and coming together in a time of need to make sure local businesses were staying open.

Sportsman's day invited local vendors to sell their goods and services during the event, from homemade items to small businesses it seemed like everyone was there. I myself spent a little money getting treats, food, and of course beer. Bron-yr-aur brewery was on site and was dishing out delicious beer, including my new personal favorite the Bever Cream Ale. While the beer garden was in full swing bands like the Osborne Bros and Genevieve were jamming out for the crowd with some much-needed live music.

Food trucks were out and selling some tasty barbecue and tacos, they even had special desserts like cookies, cake pops, and thirst-quenching beverages. There were also homemade crafts such as bracelets, earrings, cigar trays, and Minutemen Coffee.

Saturday was an extremely beautiful day and one of remembrance. During the event, we remembered those we lost who gave their lives on 9/11 whether they were first responders, citizens who jumped into action, or innocents caught in the middle. After the moment of silence, we paid tribute once again by playing the star-spangled banner with a live guitarist who took to the top of a bucket truck so the entire crowd could see him. flying high above the event He played standing next to the American flag.

If you missed out on Naches Sportsman's days make sure to come by next year so you don't miss out on the fun events, music, food, and drinks.
