LAPUSH — The annual Quileute Days continue today with salmon, baseball, canoe races and stick games.

LaPush is the home of the Quileute tribe, and the theme of the three-day celebration, which began Friday, is “History Through Our Traditions.”

The annual event is free, and the public is invited to attend.

A special guest on Saturday was actor Gil Birmingham, who plays the fictional tribal chief in all of the “Twilight” saga movies, which are based on Stephenie Meyer’s four-book vampire series set in Forks, LaPush and Port Angeles.

A Jacob Black and Bella Swan look-alike contest also was part of the festivities Saturday, which wrapped up with fireworks at 10 p.m.

Today a salmon bake is planned in front of the tribal office at noon, and canoe races are scheduled from 11 a.m. to noon.

Tournaments are finishing today.

From 9 a.m. to noon, adult baseball will be played at the Coast Guard field while youth baseball will be at the Quileute Tribal Council field.

Bingo will be played at the Tribal Council office from 1 p.m. to 10 p.m., while poker games are planned in the west wing from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m.

Stick games, a traditional betting game, will run from 3 p.m. to midnight at the tribal community center.
