The Sunfair parade they have every year in Yakima WA to start off the county fair here has been canceled for the first time in 51 years due to the heavy smoke in the air because of all the fires around the state. There is a thick covering all over the Yakima Valley and other parts of the state. Several fires are out of control. They are advising people who have breathing problems and such to stay indoors. I myself haven't been affected that much but it is getting worse. We usually close our store for it and go to the corner of downtown and watch with family and friends. It's fun and I'm going to miss it (besides being able to do this on work hours and get paid for it-LOL!!!). We are a small community of sorts and this is a total bummer. This one was suppose to be the biggest one ever with lots of school bands, floats, and so on!!!
Have a good night everyone!!!
