Three local organizations have agreed to be title sponsors for Sequim Sunshine Festival events and are contributing $5000 each to support the event.  The festival will take place on Friday, March 3 and Saturday, March 4 with a series of family-friendly activities designed to celebrate the near end of winter and the coming of the spring and summer seasons.

 Sound Community Bank returns as the title sponsor for the Illuminated Drone Show by Firefly Drone Shows.  This is the third year that Sound Community Bank has been a title sponsor for a Sequim Sunshine Festival event. The drone show will take place on Saturday, March 4 at 7:00 p.m. and will launch south of Carrie Blake Park.  The show will feature 200 drones flying in choreographed formation, is best viewed from a distance, and will be visible from multiple locations inside the park. 

 “Sound Community Bank is pleased to be an Event Title Sponsor for the 4th annual Sequim Sunshine Festival.  We are once again sponsoring the Drone Show event at Carrie Blake Park, which locals and visitors will not want to miss!  It will prove to be even bigger and better than last year.  We look forward to celebrating Sequim’s best-known asset – sunshine!   See you there,” said Shelli Robb-Kahler, Senior Vice President/Relationship Manager for Sound Community Bank.”

 Peninsula Behavioral Health is the title sponsor for the Sun Fun Color Run.  The run takes place at the Albert Haller Playfields at Carrie Blake Park on Saturday, March 4 at 11:00 a.m.  This family-friendly event offers a 1K and 5K option. You can register at

“Peninsula Behavioral Health is proud to sponsor the Sun Fun Color Run because we know that getting outside, being active, and being a part of our community promotes mental health.   The Sun Fun Color Run is the perfect embodiment of this belief, as participants come together to celebrate the joy of movement and the power of the community,” said Angel Dennis, Development Director for Peninsula Behavioral Health.”

Clallam County PUD is the title sponsor for the Interactive Light Experience. A custom-built interactive environment, designed and built by artist Ross Brown, that blends art and science encouraging visitors to look at light as an artistic design element and the physical properties of light.  The exhibit will be in the Clubhouse at Pioneer Memorial Park on Friday, March 3 from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday, March 4, from 12:00 noon to 6:30 p.m. 

 “The PUD is excited to be part of the Sunshine Festival.  Not only is it another way to celebrate our community, but it dovetails with our efforts to educate about energy, light, and emerging technologies,” said Nicole Hartman, Communication Manager and Public Records Officer for the PUD.
