ARLINGTON — The Downtown Arlington Business Association and the city of Arlington are sponsoring the city’s third annual Community Day.
The day-long event takes place downtown from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 18.
As usual, Community Day will feature the “Bite or Arlington,” during which local food vendors designate their own “bite stations” throughout North Olympic Avenue.
Patrons who make their way downtown will be able to try inexpensive samples of some the restaurants’ and shops’ most popular foods.
In addition to the Bite of Arlington, residents can also checkout entertainment in the form of music and dancing.
The Angel of the Winds Casino will be sponsoring a Poker Walk, and other events include sidewalk sales, zucchini races, exhibits, displays and a sidewalk chalk art contest.
New to this year will be a chainsaw carving event in The Local Scoop parking lot.
That event, organized by Arlington resident Debbie Anderson and sponsored by the Cascade Carving Guild, will take place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sept. 17 and Sept. 18.
Approximately 10 carvers from Washington will be carving both days, Anderson said.
On Saturday, there will be an auction where attendees will be able to purchase works that the carvers have completed during the two-day carve, Anderson said.
Proceeds from the event benefit the carver’s guild.
Residents will also be able to check out the grand opening of Centennial Trail from Haller Park to Bryant at 2 p.m. near the park, located at 1100 West Ave.
