Join the fun as DuPont kicks off a year-long celebration Jan. 6-8 at Chloe Clark Elementary School.
On Jan. 6 from 6-8:30 p.m., take part in the Pioneer Farm where you can journey back to the 1880s to experience homesteading in Washington State. Both fun and educational, this hands-on, interactive program represents the lives of both Pioneer and Native children.
Also watch the Wa He Lut Native American Dancers. The name Wa He Lut comes from a Nisqually warrior whose power flowed from thunder and lightening.
Experience this spirit come to life through beautiful dancing and drumming performances that promote cultural learning.
On Jan. 7 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. tour the Business Showcase. Meet many of your local business owners and association leaders and discover what the DuPont Business Community has to offer you. Businesses will provide information, samples, and special offers just for Showcase attendees.
There will also be a Taste of DuPont. DuPont is quickly becoming known for its dining and boutique food offerings. Don’t miss this great opportunity to try some of the best when local dining establishments and boutique food shops offer a taste to attendees for a price that won’t take a big bite out of your budget.
If your business or restaurant would like to participate in the Business Showcase or the Taste of DuPont, please contact Linda Cumberbatch (253) 964-8121 for more information.
