Ponderay Neighbor Day seeking vendors for Sept. event

By Reader Staff

The city of Ponderay is calling for vendors for the fourth annual Ponderay Neighbor Day, a community event planned for Saturday, Sept. 19 at Ponderay’s “Harbison Field” behind the Hoot Owl Cafe on Highway 200.

The city of Ponderay and the Friends of the Pend d’Oreille Bay Trail are co-hosting the event, and invite businesses to participate as a sponsor or vendor. Ponderay Neighbor Day is a celebration of local community connections, including shoreline access, the Pend d’Oreille Bay Trail, Field of Dreams and existing/future trails.

The event will include a full promotion campaign. There will be pony rides, live music, inflatables, kids crafts, food vendors, beer and more during the afternoon event, from 1 to 6 p.m.

Contact KayLeigh Miller at Ponderay City Hall for more information on how to be a sponsor or vendor: 208-265-5468. In the event that the Neighbor Day must be canceled due to unforeseen circumstances, vendor deposits will be returned. Sponsorship donations would be carried over to the 2021 event.

This year, residents will be invited to learn about and provide input on Ponderay’s “Front Yard Project,” the cleanup of the city’s shoreline property by Black Rock. The city will learn the outcome of a federal grant application this fall to fund planning, design and engineering for an underpass to provide access to the lakeshore.
