City seeking volunteers for Redmond Derby Days

The City of Redmond is seeking volunteers to help at Derby Days, its largest event of the year.

Volunteers are needed July 11-12 to assist with general setup, greeting patrons, green team, vendors, parade support, kids' activities, information booth, parking attendants, tear down and more.

Community events such as Derby Days rely on hundreds of volunteers of all ages.

"Without volunteers, Redmond community events are not possible," said Lisa Rhodes, events and marketing administrator for the City of Redmond. "This is a great way to be involved, help the community, enjoy the sunshine and make new friends."

Derby Days is Redmond's annual summer festival. The event begins at 5 p.m. on July 11 with music, a beer and wine garden, carnival games and rides. The evening ends with the showing of "Iron Man 3." The Redmond Fire Department will begin Saturday's activities with a pancake breakfast just in time for the Derby Dash 5K, kids' parade, grand parade, kids' activities, carnival, more live music, criterium bike races, food, fun and more. Fireworks conclude Derby Days at 10 p.m. July 12.
