Downtown decorations

Published November 28, 2007 / by Steve Berentson

The countdown to Christmas has begun, as evidenced by the white lights and decorations already placed to “dress up” the city’s retail districts. Check out the hospital foundation’s Celebration of Trees on display at the Port of Anacortes warehouse, 1st and Commercial, this Thursday through Saturday. On Saturday the free horse and carriage rides are open again, as they will be each Saturday of the month of December. See www.anacortes.org for a list of holiday events provided by the Chamber of Commerce.

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.
