Sun and fun

Published August 14, 2006 / by Steve Berentson

Blue skies, crowds and artwork such as this sun sculpture combined for an exciting Friday opening to the 2006 Anacortes Arts Festival. The festival, which opens each day at 10 a.m., runs through 5 p.m. Sunday. Be sure to enjoy juried art at the Port of Anacortes warehouse, 1st and Commercial Avenue. It’s a great event, don’t miss it. Street entertainers and people-watching alone make the trip worthwhile, and admission is free!

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.
