MOSES LAKE — Don’t look now, but Memorial Day is coming up fast. If things are moving so fast there’s no time to make plans, the annual Moses Lake town celebration has that covered.

The Moses Lake Spring Festival always provides a plethora of things to do, from a parade to three-on-three basketball, to a car show, a carnival, a fun run and lots of music in McCosh Park. The classic country group Sawyer Brown performs at 6 p.m. May 26.

The Davis Amusements carnival opens tonight on the field behind Frontier Middle School and will be open every day through May 26. A free showing of the movie “Incredibles 2” is scheduled for 8 p.m. tonight in McCosh Park.

Local musical acts will be performing in McCosh Park throughout the weekend, including the Big Bend Community College orchestra, the Moses Lake High School band and choir and the local children’s choir Voices of a New Day. A salute to U.S. military veterans is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Friday. Ruthie Craft, a contestant on American Idol 2019, will perform in concert at 6 p.m. Friday.

Craft and food vendors will be setting up at McCosh Park May today and Friday; vendors are in the park all weekend.

Saturday is the busiest day of the weekend, kicking off with a fly-in breakfast at the Moses Lake Municipal Airport, 3540 Municipal Airport Rd. Breakfast (and cool planes) will be out at the airport from 7 to 11 a.m. Breakfast is sponsored by the Experimental Aircraft Association; there’s a suggested donation of $8 for adults and $4 for kids under 13 years of age.

Two road races – well, a road race and a road run-walk – will start at 8 a.m. in the parking lot at the Surf ‘n Slide Water Park. Actually, the 10-kilometer road race will start at 8 a.m., with the 5-kilometer road run (or walk) at 8:15 a.m.

The Moses Lake Classic Car Club will sponsor its 38th annual Classic Car and Motorcycle Show starting at 8 a.m. Saturday. The show moves to a new location for 2019, to the Civic Center Park off Pioneer Way, behind the Moses Lake Civic Center. Registration is $25 per vehicle, with proceeds going to the Moses Lake Food Bank and to the club’s fund for second-year automotive students at Big Bend Community College.

Tipoff for two days of three-on-three basketball is at 9 a.m. Saturday, with games at a new location on Third Avenue, a few blocks further down the street between Beech and Elm streets. The tournament features children and adult divisions.

The annual Kiddie Parade begins at 6 p.m. Saturday. Admission is free. Kiddie parade participants start at Sinkiuse Square (next to the Moses Lake Post Office) and finish at McCosh Park.

One of the biggest attractions of the weekend, the Grand Moonlight Parade, begins at 8:15 p.m. Saturday. “Homegrown Heroes” is the theme. The parade route starts at the parking lot of the Surf ‘n Slide water park, goes down Third Avenue to Balsam Street, makes a right on Balsam and returns up Fourth Avenue to the Surf ‘n Slide parking lot.
