The annual Community Expo & Street Dance was yet again an enormous success! In an effort to provide easy walking paths and allow for even more business booths to participate, the Expo stretched all the way down Railroad Avenue from First to Fifth Street.
The event had the feel of a high energy block party with local businesses and community organizations drawing on showmanship and entertainment to showcase their unique services and sharing what makes their business so dynamic. The Expo went on into the evening as Little Creek Casino Resort's DJ Smylez cranked up the tunes for the return of the Street Dance.
With so many places to eat, play, and shop it's no doubt that the people's choice Golden Fork and Best Booth awards were a hot race! For the third year in a row the Best Booth Award went to Maple Glen Senior Living who leaned into summer and set-up with a "weekend at the lake" themed booth, complete with cornhole, vintage water skis, and a dedicated team of "life guards". The coveted Golden Fork this year went to Smoking Mo's who were serving up pulled pork sliders with a scrumptious layer of slaw and signature BBQ sauces.
We'd like to give a shoutout to all the amazing food vendors and the inspired dishes they brought to the table this year. Some big thanks go out to Craft, Domino's, El Sarape Cantina, Little Creek Casino Resort, Radio Fryer Foods, Shelton Farmers' Market, Smoking Mo's, Tempting Eats & Treats, Walmart, and Urracco Coffee Co.!
We also deeply appreciate this year's Premier Sponsors Hood Canal Communications, Little Creek Casino Resort, Maple Glen Senior Living, Our Community Credit Union, Port of Shelton, as well as the media support provided by the Shelton-Mason County Journal.
Save the date for next year's Expo on Friday, July 19!
