The Walk of Fame Ceremony is held at 10am on Saturday morning of the festival on Kamiaken and Main, outside of Sam Dial Jewelers.
Four new inductees to the Pullman Walk of Fame will be honored during the 29th Anniversary of the National Lentil Festival, at 10:00 am Saturday, August 19 at the corner of Kamiaken and Main. The Walk of Fame was established in 2003 to honor individuals who have served the Pullman community in a significant way, promoted goodwill, improved the quality of life for Pullman residents or brought acclaim to the area through their contributions. This year’s inductees bring the number of commemorative granite plaques to 105. Each plaque has the names of these individuals inscribed and have been installed in the sidewalks of downtown Pullman. Brochures listing all inductees are available at the Pullman Chamber office. Donations are always accepted for the Walk of Fame program.
