I’m pretty sure bikers outnumbered non-bikers like myself, but there were plenty of curious admirers Sunday in downtown Anacortes for Oyster Run 2003. Bikers started arriving in town Friday, and most started leaving Sunday afternoon. Street vendors were busy under Sunday’s sun, selling inventory ranging from hot food to Harley Davidson boots and t-shirts. Entertainment included the Seattle Cossack and Tenino motorcycle drill teams (which I missed!). One of these photos shows a plateful of oysters just before they were devoured by couple of hungry women. There was live music at several locations, including the parking lot of the Chamber of Commerce. I heard a crowd estimate of 30,000 on this year’s event, often referred to as “the last big event of summer” on Fidalgo Island.
