L-Bow the Clown performs a fire show at the 2021 Cashmere Founders’ Days Parade. The event honoring Cashmere's history, held on the last Saturday of June each year, is one of Cashmere’s largest annual celebrations. Festivities this year start at 10 a.m. Friday and continue through Saturday, ending with the grand parade.

CASHMERE — Founders’ Days, Cashmere’s biggest event, starts this Friday and ends Saturday, culminating with the Crunch Pak Parade.

This year’s community celebration brings with it the return of the Ping Pong Ball Drop — after COVID-19 canceled the event last year — though some changes are in store. The helicopter traditionally used to drop the balls isn’t available this year, said Wendy Tankersley, Cashmere Chamber of Commerce interim manager. An alternative is in the works.
