Lines formed in the northeast corner of Storvik Park for the giant inflatables, including a slide. An energetic boy tackles a “pirate” at the base of the slide. An overview of the Festival shows just a few of the many booths and activities set up for the enjoyment of local kids. All free! In addition to fingerprint sets for safety, the DARE booth featured a station to measure height. Tyler Fry came in at just over four feet.
A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
