Each year on the first Saturday in June, the Toppenish (Wash.) Mural Society recruits a group of western artists to design and complete a new mural, which is then added to the town’s already impressive collection of 73 murals. An estimated 13,000 visitors drift into town to view the live event.
Camping fees: $35/night for full hook- ups. The Yakima Nation RV Resort is located at 280 Buster Road, Toppenish WA 98948.
