People flock to downtown Hermiston during a past
Funfest. The festival, which the Hermiston Downtown
District is reviving as Spudfest, is Saturday on and around
Hermiston’s festival street.
Downtown district
digs in with Spudfest
Festival includes free
Hermiston’s longtime
mid-summer festival is
returning to its original
With the Hermiston
Downtown District taking
the reins of the mid-July
event — in recent years it
was called Funfest — they
decided to revive the fam-
ily-friendly festival known
as Spudfest.
While “fun” is no lon-
ger a part of the festival’s
name, Spudfest returns
with lots of familiar and
popular activities. The
event is Saturday from
9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in and
around Hermiston’s down-
town festival street area.
Get there early — free
bags of potatoes will be
handed out while supplies
“It was a great event
to start with,” said Brandi
Downtown District vice
president. “Also, of all the
downtown functions, it’s
the most family-driven
music, a variety of live
entertainment, kids’ games
and vendor booths (as
of Monday, 50 had con-
firmed). In addition, the
Rotary Breakfast is at
7:30 a.m. (also downtown)
and the 24th annual Cool
Rides Car Show is being
held at McKenzie Park.
Highlighting the festi-
val street is part of a col-
laborative effort between
the downtown business
owners, the city of Herm-
iston and the Hermiston
Chamber of Commerce.
Judy Pederson, president
of the Hermiston Down-
town District, said the idea
is to continue to encourage
more visitors to the Main
Street area.
The original SpudFest,
which was organized by
what was then known as
the Downtown Hermis-
ton Merchants Associa-
tion, was held for about a
decade, ending in 2000.
Several years later, it was
re-invented as Funfest.
Howard, who also owns
Andee’s Boutique, said
with the Hermiston Cham-
ber of Commerce stretched
thin with staff changes
and additional projects, it
made sense for the Main
Street businesses to take a
more active role.
“It really is a downtown
event, so we stepped up,”
Howard said. “We’re still
working together with the
chamber and the city. They
have been so helpful.”
In addition to the
monthly First Thursday,
other upcoming Hermis-
ton Downtown District
events include Umatilla
County Fair Parade Kick-
off (Aug. 3), Annual Side-
walk Sale (Aug. 8), Mel-
onFest (Aug. 17), Farm to
Junk (Sept. 21) and Har-
vest Fest (Oct. 5).
Volunteers and vendors
are needed for Hermiston
Downtown District festi-
vals. For more informa-
tion, visit www.facebook.

City council votes
to pursue local
improvement district
Hermiston City Council
voted Monday to begin the
process of pursuing a local
improvement district that
would pay for improve-
ments to the South Herm-
iston Industrial Park.
The LID would cover
along Campbell and Pen-
ney drives, requiring them
to pitch in to pay to pave
the remainder of Campbell
Drive, install water and
sewer mains in the area
and create what would
essentially be a new road
— called Southeast 10th
Street — connecting East
Penney Avenue to High-
way 395 across from Bell-
ingers. The road, which
would create access to a
piece of industrial land
owned by the Port of Uma-
tilla, only exists on paper
right now.
The city plans to pur-
sue a federal grant to pay
for about half of the proj-
ect and the city and Uma-
tilla County will contrib-
uted a combined total of
10%, leaving property
owners to contribute about
40% of the cost. Assistant
city manager Mark Mor-
gan said if the city fails
to get the grant it does not
plan to pursue the district
after all.
If 60% of affected
property owners formally
reject the plan before or
during an Aug. 12 hearing
it would also be blocked
from going forward. On
Monday no property own-
ers expressed opposition
and Port of Umatilla man-
ager Kim Puzey expressed
The city council also
adopted a strategic plan
Monday for the Eastern
Oregon Trade and Event
Center. Some of the pri-
orities in the plan include
securing water rights for
the site, updating the over-
all site plan, beautifica-
tion, improving security,
building storage and office
space for the Umatilla
County Fair, improving
the RV park, adding a mul-
tisports facility and devel-
oping a marketing plan.
