The Spirits of Snohomish Distillery Walk and After Party on Saturday includes storytelling about historic Snohomish’s “spirited past.”

Proceeds from the business-sponsored event benefit the Kla Ha Ya Days Festival and the Snohomish Boys &Girls Club.

A tour of 10 distilleries runs from 4-7 p.m., costs $8 and includes five tastings. Additional tastings are $1 each. Then, starting at 7 p.m., entertainment with live music, beer, wine and cocktails kicks off. The cost is $15, including two beer or wine drinks. Attend both events and save $3.

Check in at The Second Street Cabin, 1010 Second St.

The after party will be at the Waltz Building, 116 Avenue B.
