Jam-packed weekend offers events for all


Goldendale is starting a new tradition. Goldendale’s 1st Annual City-Wide Yard Sales. More than 60 families will be offering their wares all day Friday and Saturday.  This was formerly the 13+ Mile Yard Sales, but now only includes Goldendale and Centerville. You can pick up a printed list at the Goldendale Chamber at 903 E. Broadway, and at participating businesses.
CGOA Stages presents “Monty Python’s Spamalot,” a musical lovingly ripped off from the motion picture, Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Monty Python’s Spamalot won the 2005 Tony award for best musical. Now CGOA Stages is bringing the hilarious show to the Gorge for seven performances in June. Based largely on Monty Python and the Holy Grail film, Spamalot is a smart and irreverent send-up of history and many of the traditions of Broadway musicals as well. Like the film, Spamalot is based on the semi-mythological King Arthur and his attempt to gather Knights for his round table at Camelot and the quest to find the sacred relic. The musical contains many of the most beloved skits and scenes from the film as well as new songs and some older Python material, happily repurposed for the musical.
