Tucked away in King County, halfway between Monroe and Carnation, is the city of Duvall. Our third safest city in Washington is known for the famous Piano Drop, where an upright piano was dropped from a helicopter during a rock concert held at a Duvall farm in 1968.
Duvall still does the piano drop, but that’s just one of the fun traditions around town. Each year, the residents throw their own kind of party during Duvall Days, an annual festival held every spring that includes a fun run, parade and an old-fashioned pancake breakfast. And it’s reassuring to know that while the popularity of this local event keeps growing, visitors and residents can enjoy the festivities knowing that in 2012 there were no murders, rapes or robberies reported to authorities in Duvall.
