Photos: Vader May Day Rings in the Festival Season


The town of Vader on Saturday played host to the first festival in Lewis County in well over a year.

Like other events and gatherings, Vader May Day had been on pause in order to stay in line with state restrictions aimed at slowing the spread of COVID-19.

Next up in the month of May are ARTrails of Southwest Washington and the Packwood Flea Market.

All festivals and events are subject to change based on Washington state COVID-19 regulations.

Check individual events’ websites or social media for updates closer to each event for the most accurate information.
