The Astoria Regatta Festival Fireworks are on, thanks to the generosity of many businesses and individuals in the community. The $5,000 needed was raised.
The Astoria Regatta Association would like to thank everyone who contributed. Key contributors include Astoria Downtown Historic District Association member businesses Arc Arcade, Baked Alaska, Frite and Scoop, Old Town Framing, Purple Cow Toys, Vintage Hardware and Whole Brain Creative. Other key contributor businesses include City Lumber of Astoria, Kennell Electronics of Seaside, and Pier 39 of Astoria. Individuals to be thanked at this level include John and MJ Englund, Jim Carruthers and Mitch Mitchum, plus others who contributed.
The outpouring of support was inspiring, and our entire region can enjoy the Astoria Regatta Festival fireworks with family and friends on Saturday, Aug. 8, at dusk, from the East End Mooring Basin in Astoria.
The Astoria Regatta Festival will be held from Aug. 5-9, with the theme “Rockin’ on the River.” For more information, look for posters and information cards throughout Clatsop County chambers of commerce and businesses, go to the official Regatta website at www.astoriaregatta.com, or go to the Regatta Facebook page at “Astoria Regatta” for photos and updated information, and “like” the page.
