A grand opening celebration for Birch Bay Square is planned from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, May 23.
Events will include live music by Levi Ware at 1 p.m., “bouncy houses” for children, a french fry eating contest from Bob’s Burger and Brew at noon, doggie fashion show at 12:30 p.m., giveaways, and raffle prizes, as well as haircuts and make-up applications by Boulevard Hair Studio.
Birch Bay Square developer Levi Ware said the event will be a chance for people in the Blaine and Birch Bay communities to see what’s new at the center and hopes to plan similar future events. “It’s something we’re doing for the grand opening of The Market, but we want people to come out and be involved,” he said. “It will be a good chance for people to see what it’s all about and to be a part of the future of Birch Bay Square, not just the present.”
Birch Bay Square is located 3400 Birch Bay-Lynden Road at I-5 exit 270 in Birch Bay. For more information, visit their website at www.birchbaysquare.com
