Truckloads of sand to begin moving from Steelscape site to Spencer Creek Business Park

Kalama locals may see truckloads of sand moving from the Steelscape warehouse site across the freeway to the future home of Spencer Creek Business Park in the next few weeks. Sand has been used to compact the land for the building of the new Steelscape warehouses. That sand now transitions to provide the same land compacting at the proposed business park. Should you have any questions about the process, please call 360/673-2325.

Festival of Lighted Boats rescheduled for Saturday, December 19, due to high winds

Holiday cheer will still sail through Kalama this December but one week later than planned. The first annual Festival of Lighted Boats has been rescheduled for Saturday, December 19, 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. due to area flooding and weather conditions. The Kalama Chamber of Commerce next week welcomes the stunning holiday boat parade produced by the Dolphin Yacht Club.

The event promises holiday fun for the entire family with music and caroling, festive food and drink and crafts. The Lighted Boat Parade will last about an hour to an hour and a half and is expected to start at 6:30 p.m.

“We believe Kalama’s first-ever holiday boat parade will showcase some of the best traits of our little town—the most beautiful waterfront park in the region and a community that comes together like family,” says event organizer, Taryn Nelson, president of the Kalama Chamber. “The Festival of Lighted Boats is sure to cheer families around the region.”

The Dolphin Yacht Club, which participates in a holiday boat parade in Camas/Washougal, eyes the Kalama’s Marine Park as an ideal setting to launch the popular family event.

“The yacht club approached the Chamber about a partnership to add on-the-ground activities and entertainment which we believe will attract a new audience to Kalama’s core,” says Nelson.

Families who join in the fun will find a cheery holiday celebration including:

  • Narrated Lighted Boat Parade
  • Live music (Kalama and Woodland High School Choirs & elementary school performances)
  • Santa Photo Booth
  • Warm beverages
  • Chili, nachos, caramel corn
  • Holiday crafts and more
