About Sunnyside

Sunnyside is a city in Yakima County, Washington, United States. The population was 13,905 at the 2000 census.

History

On September 16, 1902, residents voted 42 to one to incorporate as the town of Sunnyside. By state law a town needed to have 300 citizens in order to legally incorporate. With 314 residents, Sunnyside was just eligible to legally vote for incorporation.

The first mayor of Sunnyside was the town druggist James Henderson.

The settlement was originally founded by Walter Granger in 1893. The name "Sunnyside" was coined by a merchant named W. H. Cline. Granger was involved in the financing and construction of the Sunnyside Canal which would allow Yakima River water to irrigate the area. However, due to the Panic of 1893, Granger's creditors foreclosed on the canal, and the town's population dwindled to seven families.

Five years later, members of the German Baptist Progressive Brethren (also known as Dunkards) relocated to Sunnyside in order to form what they called the Christian Cooperative Colony. The Brethren bought the entire town site and soon developed its first bank, and a telephone system. They enforced clauses prohibiting alcohol, dancing, and gambling as a condition on every parcel of land sold. Because of this, old maps of Washington identify the town with a cross or halo symbol.

Sunnyside's population continued to increase as Dunkards from South Dakota moved to the town. Later, in the 1930s, refugees from the Dust Bowl also moved to Sunnyside.

Under the leadership of mayor William Bright "Billy" Cloud (1870-1959), Sunnyside initiated a project to pave its dirt streets on June 5, 1917. This project was necessary since years of irrigation had raised the water table to the point that the streets had become unbearably muddy. The cost of the entire project was $62,629.45.

Attractions and events

Lighted Farm Implement Parade


First held in 1989, the 'Lighted Farm Implement Parade has been called "the NW's premier lighted parade." Usually taking place in early December, the parade includes "farm implements: combines, boom trucks, sprayers, swathers, grape pickers, and all types of tractors" decorated with colorful lights. The 2006 edition of the event had more than 70 parade entrants. The A&E network has named the event one of the "Top 10" such parades in the United States. The parade was the first of its kind in the Yakima Valley.

Darigold cheese factory

The Darigold Dairy Fair manufactures cheese, (150 million pounds of cheese annually) but is mostly noted for its colorful facade and circus-like decorations, which include a pair of cows swinging on a flying trapeze. Self-guided tours are available demonstrating how cheese is made. Cheese tasting and a gift shop are also on the premises.
