A swirl of maritime fun

Published June 3, 2019 / by Steve Berentson

What a great weekend of family fun with a maritime theme: The 2019 Anacortes Waterfront Festival! Among many weekend activities at the 30th Annual Waterfront Festival was a performance by the hometown Vela Luka Croatian Dance Ensemble, pictured here during a magical moment before an enthusiastic crowd. Thanks to the Anacortes Chamber of Commerce, the Port of Anacortes and dozens of event sponsors who make this free festival such a great draw for our shoreside community.

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.
