Downtown celebration

Published December 3, 2010 / by Steve Berentson

Christmas season 2010 kicked off today with a series of holiday events, culminating Friday evening with the Chamber’s Community Christmas Tree lighting event. This event, complete with live entertainment and holiday treats, rolled right into the Christmas Art Walk through Historic Downtown galleries. Tomorrow’s Christmas parade is scheduled to begin at 11 a.m., also in Historic Downtown Anacortes.

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.
