Not to be outdone, the Lions Club puts on a wonderful Father's Day
breakfast at the Community Building. Speaking of the Lions Club, they also have monthly Bingo games at the Community Building on the Second Sunday of each month.
Every July the town enjoys the Kalama Fair and Downtown Parade. Fair Princesses, Queen Coronation, and 4H activities all take place. In August, downtown Kalama is filled with with antique cars for the Untouchables Car Show and the All City Garage Sales the weekend of the third Sunday in August.
Halloween in Kalama is always a great safe event for those young trick-or-treaters. 1st Street is closed down for a couple hours so the ghostly creatures, super heroes, and princesses can safely go from one business to another to receive their trick or treat!
Christmas arrives in Kalama around the first weekend in December. There are usually free photos with Santa for the kids and other activities to keep the excited youngsters busy. Of course there's the Holiday Light Display in Toteff Park and the Downtown Decorating Contest amongst businesses. The AMALAK ladies group sponsors either a Tour of Homes or another holiday event. The Kalama Chamber sponsors the Christmas in Kalama Drive Thru and The Festival of Lighted Boats.
