Waterfront Festival poster

Published March 27, 2004 / by Steve Berentson

The countdown to the annual Anacortes Waterfront Festival began this week with the unveiling of a poster designed by artist Jennifer Bowman. It’s been a big year for Bowman, who recently completed a 40-ft. mural for the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival. Her work is also featured on the covers of telephone books circulated by MacGregor Publishing Company of Mount Vernon. The annual Anacortes Waterfront Festival – a great family event celebrating this community’s maritime heritage – is scheduled May 22 and 23.

About Steve Berentson
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.
