An opportunity like this only comes along once in a century... (Someone check.. There must be a total eclipse or something to have talked us into this!)

As Premiere sponsors on The Issaquah Highlands Days 2017 somehow we agreed to run and operate a dunk tank this year! And "YES" I know we could charge for an opportunity like this,  but here is your chance to come by and test out your arm and see if you can make either Matt or I hit the water for FREE!

The Cascade Team is very happy to partner with The Issaquah Highlands and support this wonderful community event. More information on all the fun in addition to our dunk tank below!

Highlands Day Festival 2017

Once Upon a Highlands Day

Once upon a time, in a village on a hillside in the land of Issaquah, the people declared, Highlands Day 2017 Trumpeter


“Hear Ye! Hear Ye!  The 26th day of the month of August, in the year of two-thousand-seventeen, has been pronounced Highlands Day!”

Royalty, knights, jesters and the like marked their calendars in anticipation of this day to celebrate the fairy-tale life that is living in Issaquah Highlands!

On festival day, all the storybook characters from everyone’s favorite classic tales will come to life as we enjoy live entertainment, hearty fare, and medieval fun.
