It was time for a party Thursday night as the Chamber of Commerce combined business and tourism events to draw a crowd at 1801 Commercial Avenue. Pictured here is Mayor Dean Maxwell, cutting the ribbon for the official grand opening of the new home of Island Adventures and Anacortes Kayak Tours. Shane and Jennifer Aggergaard (left, with son Andrew) have expanded their whale watching business to include kayak tours, offered by Erik and Megan Schorr (right). The businesses’ new digs are in the former location of a convenience store, next store to The Business. Goods and services inside the beautifully renovated building range from coffee and sandwiches to a gift shop and gallery. Island Adventures will still launch its excursions from a slip at Cap Sante Marina, former location of their office. Also on the agenda last night was the official unveiling of the Anacortes Waterfront Festival poster, designed this year by local artist Jennifer Bowman (see Waterfront Festival Kickoff in Activities section).
