Happy 4th, Anacortes!

Published July 4, 2019 / by Steve Berentson

Just as it was in 2002, when this photo was taken, Independence Day will be celebrated in many ways today in Anacortes. Our community parade takes place downtown at 11 a.m., and there is a “Rock the Dock” event tonight leading into the community Fireworks Show. See www.Anacortes.org for details about miscellaneous holiday events.

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.
