Valleyfest works closely with the Spokane Valley Fire Department and the City of Spokane Valley Police Department to insure the safety and comfort of those attending the parade and the businesses along the route. Therefore, safety cones are placed by your entry driveway to alert patrons and those attending of the driveway hazards. Those barricades and cones are picked up immediately after the parade by the Valleyfest volunteers.
We need many types of volunteers to help out BEFORE, DURING and AFTER the parade has finished at Pines Ave.
