Nearly 1,000 people participated in the fire-and-ice themed obstacle course, which featured mud holes, water-covered slides and smoldering hay piles. Money raised from the event went to the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance.

Eleven new streetlights have been installed along Hoyt Avenue in the arts district in downtown Everett. The energy-efficient lights cost $100,000 and are part of the city’s $5.2 million Hoyt Avenue streetscape project. The lights, designed by Seattle-based artist Susan Zoccola, line Hoyt from Everett Avenue to Wall Street. Projectors at the top of each pole, when completed, will cast lighted images onto the sidewalk below.

The Snohomish Garden Club has secured funding to add 65 flower baskets along First Street this summer. Recession-era budget cuts reduced the basket program to 25 last year. The program is able to expand this summer with the help of the city and Historic Downtown Snohomish.
