Spokane, Washington, is excited to celebrate 509 days. Not only is it May 9th, but it’s also their area code for the Spokane region and the bulk of the state located East of the Cascades. This includes Spokane, the Tri-Cities, Ellensburg, Walla-Walla, and Yakima. In 1957, the original area code of 206 was split, and the eastern half of the state became the 509 area code.

Celebrated each year on May 9th, events typically include live music, food, and fun activities throughout the city. The day is meant to celebrate local businesses and culture and to support the city's diverse population. There are also often free concerts, art galleries, and other activities available to attendees.

Businesses all over town will be participating and celebrating 509 days by having deals ranging from $5.09 to $509. You can find many of the deals here. Make sure to plan ahead to enjoy your special 509 days. Whether you’re celebrating it as the day of May 09, 2023, or because you reside in the 509 area code, you’re sure to have an enjoyable time celebrating this day. With a variety of businesses participating, you’re sure to find a deal that you can afford and enjoy.

Many people are looking for a reason to get out and celebrate after having been stuck inside for nearly 2 years with the pandemic. Of course, you don’t really need a reason to celebrate, but if you’d like one. This one sounds pretty good to us.
