Buckley Beer and Wine Walk coming Sept. 25

The third annual Buckley Beer and Wine Walk, a Buckley Chamber of Commerce's fundraiser, will take place Sept. 25.

Check-in will be at the Firehouse Pub where participants will receive wristbands confirming their age before venturing out to visit area businesses and their stock of beverages.

Admission is $35 at the door and $25 for those who preregister, or $20 for those who preregister and donate a new or gently-used winter coat. Registration can be taken at the Firehouse Pub, Elkhead Brewery, Frisby Farms or the Chamber of Commerce office in Mt. Rainier Realty. Picture identification will be required for registration to confirm all participants are 21 years of age or older.

Every participant will receive a souvenir shot glass, five taste tickets, a beer and wine walk booklet and a walking map for the stops.

Stops on the walk include Keepsakes antiques, Edward Jones financial planning and the Foothills Historical Society and Museum.

"Last year we had about 80 participants in the walk," said Jason Schafer, who co-owns the Firehouse Pub with his wife and is helping to organize the walk. "This year we're shooting for over 100. Hopefully we'll get people to come to Buckley and maybe get them into a local business for awhile, even if its for the drinks there."

For more information, call the chamber at 360-829-0975.
