Shelton-Mason County Chamber of Commerce President Heidi McCutcheon said it is one the Chamber's favorite events.
"We get to show off the businesses and nonprofits that make Mason County unique – and there's truly something for everyone," McCutcheon wrote in an email to the Journal. "Some folks drop by on their lunch break for delicious bites, others swing down for the afternoon, some come back at the end of the workday after picking up the family. I think this year we'll see a bunch of families check out the happenings on Railroad before heading to the new Movies in the Park, hosted by the city. The Expo & Bite of Mason County is an incredible opportunity to highlight local entrepreneurs, give a platform for local efforts, and allow residents to explore all that you can get right here. I'm thankful that the Chamber continues this tradition."
