This juggler did an awesome job on that August afternoon of 1985! Note the building in the background, then under a major renovation (Majestic?). See other memory-jogging images from the 1985 festival with a visit to the “In the News” section below. Left click on first image, then click on arrow on right margin of image to scroll through the collection. See you this weekend for the new, shiny version of the always popular Anacortes Arts Festival!

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.
