Education

Pasco is served by the Pasco School District and Columbia Basin College.

Pasco High School is currently the city's only public high school, and is one of the largest in the state of Washington. However, due to the rapid growth of the city in recent years, a second high school was approved via a voter bond and is currently under construction. Chiawana High School will open in Fall 2009. The school recently adopted the Riverhawks as their mascot with school colors of navy blue and silver.

With a rapidly growing campus, Columbia Basin College is the largest public two-year community college in Southeastern Washington with a student body of nearly 7,000 students. The college was founded in 1955 and serves students from the entire Tri-Cities region.

Recreation

Among all of Pasco's annual activities and events, the most popular is the Pasco Farmers Market, located in downtown Pasco. The market is open from May through October each year, drawing a large regional crowd and providing an outlet for farmers selling fresh produce.

The Fiery Foods Festival is another popular event held each September. This one-day event celebrates spicy foods of all varieties, and highlights the thriving Hispanic culture that lives in the city.

Pasco's Dust Devil Stadium hosts the Tri-City Dust Devils baseball club of the Northwest League. The Dust Devils are a Class A team of the Colorado Rockies. The team plays during summer months during its relatively short season.
