Do the Bloom Color Run

Published April 13, 2019 / by Steve Berentson

The 5th Annual Do the Bloom Color Run took place Saturday morning with a hearty group of participants! This Anacortes Arts Festival-sponsored event is billed as “a 5K run, walk, stroll, jog or crawl.” It starts at the Depot Arts Center and winds along the water at Cap Sante Marina. Volunteer color throwers like those pictured here turn runners into living works of art.

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.
