Majestic 4th

Published July 4, 2007 / by Steve Berentson

All dressed up in patriotic bunting for the 4th of July is the Majestic Inn in downtown Anacortes. Within the next few hours the sidewalks will be packed as folks gather for the traditional “town photo,” parade and Causland Park events. The town photo is at 10 a.m. under the arch on Commercial Avenue. The parade starts at 11 a.m., and Causland Park activities at 12:30. Don’t miss the fireworks tonight over Fidalgo Bay. Happy 4th of July!

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.
