WAITSBURG - The fourth Waitsburg Happening will occur on Saturday, October 7. This Saturday, the businesses on Main Street will be celebrating National Old Farmers Day. Expect to see tractors, combines, hay bales, horseback riders, and enjoy special cocktails, entertainment, and treats.
There will be vintage tractors and combines from Rob McKinney and Ed Burlingame displayed throughout town between 3 p.m and 6 p.m. The Plaza Theater will play "The 1919 Walla Walla Tractor Show."
Artist Barb Jaksa will exhibit original landscape derivative drawings (charcoal on paper) and paintings (oil on board) at the Waitsburg Art Garden. The drawings represent the artist's investigations into the Palouse landscape. The volcanic regions of Washington and Oregon inspire the paintings.
